Reviews

"An elegant and incisive writer and observer, Marie Arana has given us a thoughtful and revealing portrait of the fabled--and too-little-understood--world of Latin America. Combining history with contemporary reportage, Silver, Sword & Stone is compelling reading."--Jon Meacham, author of The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels
"To trace the soul of a continent is an extraordinary feat, and Marie Arana does it with scholarly precision, moral thoroughness and elegance of style. For anyone interested in understanding--really understanding--what Latin America is and where it comes from, Silver, Sword and Stone has to be the first step."--Juan Gabriel Vasquez, author of The Sound of Things Falling
"Marie Arana's monumental, stupendous new history of Latin America, Silver Sword, and Stone, is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand this hemisphere and our current crises."--Julia Alvarez, author of In the Time of the Butterflies
"Silver, Sword, and Stone, as Arana points out, is not a straightforward history of Latin America. Neither is it journalism. Rather, it's a hybrid, combining learned historical analysis with in-depth reporting and political commentary. . . . [And] an informed and authoritative voice, one that deserves a wide audience."--Alvaro Enrigue "The New York Times "
