Born in Blood and Fire: A Concise History of Latin America por John Charles Chasteen
This amazingly brief history of Latin America will delight any reader. Fully informed by the latest scholarship, this cleverly written survey spans six centuries & covers twenty countries. John Charles Chasteen presents a compelling narrative of the Latin American experience, animated by stories about men & women from all walks of life, & enriched by insightful analysis. The famous & not so famous characters of Latin America are here: Cortes, Malinche, Moctezuma, Sister Juana Ines de la Cruz, Bolivar, Father Manuel Hidalgo, Juan & Evita Peron, and, of course, Che Guevara. This is a story of despair & hope, the processes of conquest & colonization, race mixing & class construction, revolution & republic formation, & the elusive quests for sustained economic growth & political & social equality. This beautifully written, concise history will be especially valuable for business & recreational travelers on their way to Latin America.
