Five hundred years, compressed in less than five hundred pages.... The events taking place in the Americas from the pre-Columbus time to the wars for independence of the early 19th century, the evolvement of the new nations, their economic and political development and the search for identity during the past century - these are the processes around which the history professor at the Vanderbilt University is building his analysis. The clash of peoples and cultures - local Americans, Europeans and Africans - determines the image of Latin America and lends it that integrity and diversity, which the author brings to the fore as a central theme in the short but exhaustive study. Marshall Eakin combines the clear structural arrangement of the presentation with thorough interpretation, to offer a concise review rife with data on a region, impressive and provoking for its past and its present alike.
