A thematic approach to detailing Latin America.
For courses in Latin-American history.
Written by two of the leading scholars in the field, Latin America and Its People presents a fresh interpretative survey of Latin-American history from pre-Columbian times to the present. It examines the many institutions that Latin-Americans have built and rebuilt - families, governments, churches, political parties, labor unions, schools and armies - through the everyday lives of the diverse people who forged these institutions and later altered them to meet changing circumstances.

This in an extremely thorough and well organized text ... It also integrates the latest scholarship in the field. I like the fact that it focuses on the lives of ordinary people in Latin America and that it is attuned to issues of race, class, gender and human diversity while at the same time bringing together the peoples' different stories under a common history.
