Since independence at the beginning of the nineteenth century, Latin America has maintained close links with Britain. This book examines the cultural and social implications of the relationship through a series of case studies that focus on British, Irish, and West Indian immigrants and their descendants in Mexico, Central and South America. The contributors - historians, anthropologists and sociolinguists - explore the past, present and putative future of English-speaking communities in Latin America and the relationships with their host societies.
