This is a completely revised and updated edition of SR Books' classic text, Problems in Modern Latin American History. This book has been brought up to date by Professors John Charles Chasteen and James A. Wood to reflect current scholarship and to maximize the book's utility as a teaching tool. The book is divided into 13 chapters, with each chapter dedicated to addressing a particular qproblemq in modern Latin America-issues that complement most survey texts. Each chapter includes an interpretive essay that frames a clear central issue for students to tackle, along with excerpts from historical writing that advance alternative-or even conflicting-interpretations. In addition, each chapter contains primary documents for students to analyze in relation to the interpretive issues. This primary material includes passages of Latin American fiction in translation, biographical sketches, and images. Designed as a supplemental text for survey courses on Latin American history, this book's provocative qproblemsq approach will engage students, evoke lively classroom discussion, and promote critical thinking.Instead, Great Britain, France, and the United States replaced the old aquot;mother countriesaquot; at the center of the system, while ... nitrates and copper from Chile, beef and wheat from Argentina, coffee from Brazil and Colombiaa€”the list goes on.
