Summary
"Contemporary Latin America presents the epochal political, economic, social, and cultural changes in Latin America over the last 40 years and comprehensively examines their impact on life in the region, and beyond. Provides a fresh approach and a new interpretation of the seismic changes of the last 40 years in Latin America. Introduces major themes from a humanistic and universal perspective, putting each subject in a context that readers can understand and relate to. Focuses on 'Ibero-America'--Brazil and the eighteen countries that were formerly Spanish possessions--while offering valuable comparative views of the non-Iberian areas of the Caribbean. Emphasizes the global, regional and national dimensions of the region's recent past"--
