The complete Cambridge History of Latin America presents a large-scale authoritative survey of Latin America's unique historical experience from the first contact between Indians and Europeans at the end of the fifteenth century to the present day. Brazil: Empire and Republic, 1822-1930 is a selection of five chapters from volumes III and IV - three on the Empire (1822-89) and two on the First Republic (1889-1930) - brought together to provide a continuous history of Brazil from independence in 1822 to the Revolution of 1930. A chapter on the separation of Brazil from Portugal (1808-22) forms an introduction to the volume and a link with Colonial Brazil, a collection of chapters drawn from volumes I and II of the Cambridge History of Latin America. Bibliography essays are included for all chapters. The book will be a valuable text for both teachers and students of Latin American history.
