PRAISE FOR THE PREVIOUS EDITIONS: "Rare is the book in English that provides a general overview of Latin America and the Caribbean. Rarer still is the good, topical, and largely dispassionate book that contributes to a better understanding of the rest of the hemisphere. Peter Winn has managed to produce both."--"Miami Herald "This magisterial work provides an accessible and engaging introduction to the complex tapestry of contemporary Latin America and the Caribbean."--Foreign Affairs "A clear, level-headed snapshot of a region in transition. . . . Winn is most interesting when he discusses the larger issues and to his credit he does this often."--Washington Post Book World "Balanced and wide-ranging. . . . After canvassing the legacies of the European conquerors, Winn examines issues of national identity and economic development. . . . Other discussions survey internal migration, the role of indigenous peoples, the complexity of race relations, and the treatment of women." --Publishers Weekly
