Description - English-Speaking Communities in Latin America Since Independence by O. Marshall

Since independence at the beginning of the 19th 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.
