A thematic approach to detailing Latin America.
For courses in Latin-American history.
Written by two of the leading scholars in the field, Latin America and Its People presents a fresh interpretative survey of Latin-American history from pre-Columbian times to the present. It examines the many institutions that Latin-Americans have built and rebuilt - families, governments, churches, political parties, labor unions, schools and armies - through the everyday lives of the diverse people who forged these institutions and later altered them to meet changing circumstances.
