9780205520534: Latin America and Its People, Combined Volume (2nd Edition)

<>Offering a balance of social, political, environmental, and cultural history, Latin America and Its People looks at the whole of Latin America in a thematic rather than country-by-country approach. This engaging textbook emphasizes the stories of the diverse people of Latin America, their everyday lives, and the issues that affected them.

 

Written by two of the leading scholars in the field, Cheryl Martin and Mark Wasserman, Latin America and Its People presents a fresh interpretative survey of Latin American history from pre-Columbian times to the beginning of the Twenty-First Century. It examines the many institutions that Latin Americans have built and rebuilt - families, governments, churches, political parties, labor unions, schools, and armies - and it does so through the lives of the people who forged these institutions and later altered them to meet the changing circumstances.

Features

  • “How Historians Understand” essays with critical thinking questions give students insight into how historians work and also examine how historical information is used and sometimes transformed according to the issues of the time.
  • “Slice of Life” vignettes with critical thinking questions take students to the scene of the action, illustrating the living conditions and social pressures during a particular time in history.
  • "Latin American Lives” biographical essays with discussion questions focus on famous and not famous individuals and illustrate key points within the chapter.
  • “Learning More About Latin Americans” sections at the end of each chapter offer suggestions for further reading for students interested in pursuing research projects on the lives of Latin Americans.

New to this Edition

  • Two new “Slice of Life” features: “The Indians of Oaxtepec Defend Their Land and Water” shows how the indigenous people of one village in Mexico ensured their community’s survival through creative adaptations to the cash economy and legal maneuvers. “On the Streets of Nuevo Laredo” describes the lives of cartoneros, or cardboard pickers, and provides graphic insight into the informal economy in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.
  • Two new “Latin American Lives”: Chapter 8 now contains a biography of Jose Antonio Aponte, a free black carpenter from Havana who was executed for allegedly fomenting a slave uprising in 1812. A biography of Luis Terrazas, political boss of Chihuahua, Mexico and the leading landowner and cattle raiser in Mexico at the time of the Revolution, is also now included.
