The Portuguese- and Spanish-speaking states created in the early 1820s following the wars of independence differed enormously in geographical and demographical scale, ethnic composition and economic resources, yet shared distinct historical and cultural traits; together they comprise Latin America. Specially commissioned essays analyse history, politics, art and literature from the nineteenth century to the present day and consider the heritage of pre-Columbian and colonial Latin America. A chronology and guides to further reading are included, making this volume an invaluable introduction to the rich and varied culture of modern Latin America.
