- DescriptionThe term Latin America refers to the Portuguese and Spanish-speaking states created in the early 1820s following the wars of independence, states that differed ermously in geographical and demographical scale, ethnic composition and ecomic resources, yet shared distinct historical and cultural traits.

These essays analyse history and politics from the nineteenth century to the present day and consider the heritage of pre-Columbian and Colonial Latin America. There is a particular focus on narrative as well as on poetry, art and architecture, music, cinema, theatre, and broader issues of popular culture. A final chapter looks at the strong and rapidly expanding influence of lati/a culture in the United States. A chrology and guides to further reading are included, making this volume an invaluable introduction to the rich and varied culture of modern Latin America.
