Earthquakes, hurricanes, guerrillas and military coups hit the headlines; the underlying social order passes almost unnoticed. Latin America has long had a reputation for violence and unpredictability. As the world moves towards the end of its second century of independence, much about this fascinating area remains a mystery. Yet Latin America has led the way for the Third World to demand full equality for its citizens. This revised and updated edition is a political history of 20th-century Latin America. Peter and Susan Calvert, two specialists in Latin American politics present a new view of this vital region, its frustrations, its setbacks and its exciting possibilities. It is organized theoretically and chronologically.
