"There can be no doubt that this is the best collaborative history of the region currently available, or likely to be available for a long time to come." Book Review Digest "This most recent volume in The Cambridge History of Latin America follows the high standards of earlier volumes...Each chapter provides a lucid synthesis of historical writing to date, and most offer a bold and sometimes provocative interpretation of their subjects...Each country is dealt with up to the present, which is unusual and welcome. The volume is handsomely printed, with an outstanding bibliography. A must for all academic libraries." Choice "The eighth volume of The Cambridge History of Latin America maintains the high standard of its predecessors, a tribute to the series editor, Leslie Bethell...The authors are all recognized authorities in their fields...The chapters provide insight into the political, economic, and social developments of the period...for upper-level and graduate courses, the book should be a required text; the annotated bibliographies for each chapter are invaluable for staff and students alike, and the volume--indeed, the entire series--is essential for any library with a Latin American collection." Peter Blanchard, History
