Idea of Latin America by Walter D. Mignolo
Book DescriptionThe Idea of Latin America is a geo-political manifesto which insists on the need to leave behind an idea which belonged to the nation-building mentality of nineteenth-century Europe. * Charts the history of the concept of Latin America from its emergence in Europe in the second half of the nineteenth century through various permutations to the present day. * Asks what is at stake in the survival of an idea which subdivides the Americas. * Reinstates the indigenous peoples and migrations excluded by the image of a homogenous Latin America with defined borders. * Insists on the pressing need to leave behind an idea which belonged to the nation-building mentality of nineteenth-century Europe.

Rereading the Black Legend, Paperback (February 2008)» View all books by Walter D. Mignolo
The phrase "the Black Legend" was coined in 1912 by a Spanish journalist in protest of the characterization of Spain by other Europeans as a backward country. Challenging this stereotype, this book contextualizes Spain's tarnished reputation by exposing colonial efforts of other nations whose interests were served by propagating the Black Legend.
