The Cambridge History of Latin America is the first authoritative large-scale history of the whole of Latin America - Mexico and Central America, the Spanish-speaking Caribbean (and Haiti), Spanish South America and Brazil - from the first contacts between the native peoples of the Americas and Europeans in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries to the present day. A major work of collaborative international scholarship, The Cambridge History of Latin America has been planned, co-ordinated and edited by a single editor, Dr Leslie Bethell, Reader in Hispanic American and Brazilian History at University College London. It will be published in eight volumes. Each volume or set of volumes examines a period in the economic, social, political, intellectual and cultural history of Latin America.

"At its best, volume V of The Cambridge History of Latin America goes well beyond the demanding requirements of a serviceble reference tool. Many of the longer essays transcend the historiography their authors inherited to provide entirley new syntheses. Even when the shape of the narratives is conventional or the interpretation familiar, the writings often contain new information and insight." Hispanic-American Historical Review "...an optimum degree of competency and high level of scholarship. The material presented and the varying interpretaions offered combine to form a highly readable text and most enjoyable experience for the reader...the entire set of volumes must find its way to the shelves of every first-rate university library. Acquisitions Departments, take note!" Solomon Lipp, Revista Canadiense de Estudios Hispanicos "Many of the longer essays transcend the historiography their authors inherited to provide entirely new syntheses."
