A new interpretation of the forces shaping the Americas informs this book of original essays written by scholars from diverse disciplines of history, comparative literature, anthropology, sociology, demography, women's studies, economics, and political science. Part I, Contested States, explores issues of sovereignty, the development of Latin American states, economic restructuring and political democratization, and the evolution and future of revolutionary movements in the region. Part II, New Voices/New Visions, explores the innovative and creative forces emerging in the region, including feminist movements, religious innovations, and developments in literature and the arts. Part III, American Identities in Formation, analyzes some of the varied identities of people of the region, from indigenous peoples in Mayan communities to immigrants and refugees within the Americas and in the United States.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[A] valuable work of scholarship...most appropriate for social science courses of an advanced nature."--Teaching History "Good complement to the Americas film series and the Smith and Skidmore text."--John T. Deiner, University of Delaware "This series of essays, authored by leaders in their respective fields, brings a historical and multidisciplinary dimension to our understanding of Latin America. Each essay constitutes an authoritative statement in and of itself. Together they form a comprehensive overview of Latin America today. In an era of enhanced hemispheric understanding, they should be required reading for scholars, policy makers, and decision makers."--A.J.R. Russell-Wood, Johns Hopkins University "[An] innovative and stimulating volume!!"--Foreign Affairs
