SR Books' two popular Human Tradition in Latin America titles, covering nineteenth- and twentieth-century history, have been combined into one exciting new volume. The most compelling chapters from these books are now presented in The Human Tradition in Modern Latin America. From the turbulent struggles for independence in the 1800s to the profound and often overwhelming transformations that have accompanied modernization in this century, The Human Tradition in Modern Latin America personalizes the impact that revolution, economic upheaval, urbanization, the destruction of community life, and the disruption of both traditional family and gender roles have had on Latin Americans. Nowhere else can such varied portraits be found as in these diverse and carefully researched essays written by leading scholars.
