This popular book, now in its fifth edition, is a lively interpretive history that continues to be one of Oxford's most successful books. Modern Latin America, 5/e has been thoroughly revised and expanded. The authors have added socio-cultural sections and boxes to nearly every chapter. It covers such diverse areas as the Argentine Tango, Santer a in Cuba, and the recent boom in the popularity of Latin music in the United States, all of which give this edition a distinctly new and exciting flavor. All political and economic information has been brought up-to-date and, as in earlier editions, the authors use an in-depth case study approach that guides readers through the major countries of South America, highlighting central themes including European-New World interaction, racial mixtures, military takeovers, and U.S. intervention in the area.
