Description - Keen's Latin American Civilization by Robert M. Buffington

A classic anthology of primary documents in Latin American history, Keens Latin American Civilization introduces readers to the sweeping panorama of Latin American history. More than 140 readings, organized chronologically and placed in context by insightful introductory notes and essays, provide vivid glimpses of life in Latin America from the conquest to the colonial, national, and contemporary eras, making Keens Latin American Civilization eminently suitable for one- or two-term survey courses. In the ninth edition, editors Robert Buffington and Lila Caimari document dramatic recent changes in Latin America, including the resurgence of leftist governments, the feminization of politics from the grassroots to the presidency, the devastating effects of narco-trafficking and political corruption on law and order, and growing concerns about the environment.
