These volumes are going to revolutionize the teaching of Latin American history. The sources are marvelous because they provide entire translated documents that permit students to delve deeply into many subjects...[and] to discover on their own the fascinating lives of common people and elites. In addition, the text contextualizes well each period and document, making it possible to teach a course based just on these volumes. Erick D. Langer, Georgetown University Documenting Latin America is an exceptional collection in that it strikes the crucial balance between breadth and depth of coverage. Students and instructors alike will be impressed with the variety of interesting and well-chosen documentary selections, each of them with an introduction that is conceptually sophisticated yet accessible. Kevin Gannon, Grand View CollegeVom Verlag:
Documenting Latin America focuses on the central themes of race, gender, and politics. These themes are especially important for understanding and evaluating the history of Latin America, where identities were forged out of the conflicts, negotiations, and intermixing of peoples from Europe, Africa, and the Americas. Documentary sources provide readers with the tools to develop a broad understanding of the course of Latin American social, cultural, and political history. Drawing upon labor, biographical, economic, and military histories, the book offers a unique blend of perspectives of history from both above and below, from under-studied as well as often-studied regions, and from a combination of archival and classic sources that will allow readers to engage in a meaningful way with the Latin American past.
