Описание: Since its early days, the United States has intervened hundreds of times in the affairs of Latin American countries from spying and proxy wars to major military invasions. Interventions range from direct self–interest –– annexing Spanish and Mexican territory, or protecting U.S.–owned plantations and canals in Central America to activities more generally oriented toward spreading U.S.–style democracy –– training Latin American fighters to topple leftist governments, taking down strongmen in Panama and Haiti, and fighting drug cartels. A Short History of U.S. Interventions in Latin America and the Caribbean presents a concise account of the full sweep of U.S. military interventions in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean from 1800 up to the present day. For each era, author Alan McPherson looks at five elements –– causes, consequences, contestation, collaboration, and context to shed light on the economic, military, political, and cultural issues that have shaped U.S.–Latin America relations. McPherson also gives voice to the many Latin Americans who resisted U.S. intervention as well as to those who may have invited or accommodated it. The larger historical sweep of European colonization, westward expansion, the World Wars, the Cold War, and post–Cold War anxieties provides crucial background to these events. Engaging and thought–provoking, A Short History of U.S. Interventions in Latin America and the Caribbean is an eye–opening compilation of two centuries of an important aspect of the history of the Americas.

Описание: This study, now in a revised and updated third edition, covers the economic history of Latin America from independence in the 1820s to the present. It stresses the differences between Latin American countries while recognizing the external influences to which the whole region has been subject. Victor Bulmer-Thomas notes the failure of the region to close the gap in living standards between it and the United States and explores the reasons. He also examines the new paradigm taking shape in Latin America since the debt crisis of the 1980s and asks whether this new economic model will be able to bring the growth and improvement in equity that the region desperately needs. This third edition contains a wealth of new material that draws on the new research in the area in the past ten years.
Studies challenging the idea that technology and science flow only from global North to South.
The essays in this volume study the creation, adaptation, and use of science and technology in Latin America. They challenge the view that scientific ideas and technology travel unchanged from the global North to the global South -- the view of technology as "imported magic." They describe not only alternate pathways for innovation, invention, and discovery but also how ideas and technologies circulate in Latin American contexts and transnationally. The contributors' explorations of these issues, and their examination of specific Latin American experiences with science and technology, offer a broader, more nuanced understanding of how science, technology, politics, and power interact in the past and present.
The essays in this book use methods from history and the social sciences to investigate forms of local creation and use of technologies; the circulation of ideas, people, and artifacts in local and global networks; and hybrid technologies and forms of knowledge production. They address such topics as the work of female forensic geneticists in Colombia; the pioneering Argentinean use of fingerprinting technology in the late nineteenth century; the design, use, and meaning of the XO Laptops created and distributed by the One Laptop per Child Program; and the development of nuclear energy in Argentina, Mexico, and Chile.

Описание: Between the mid-nineteenth and mid-twentieth centuries, an influx of Europeans, Asians, and Arabic speakers indelibly changed the face of Latin America. While many studies of this period focus on why the immigrants came to the region, this volume addresses how the newcomers helped construct national identities in the Caribbean, Mexico, Argentina, and Brazil.The essays, from some of the most respected scholars of migration history, examine the responses—some welcoming, some xenophobic—to the newcomers. The contributors also look at the lasting effects that Jewish, German, Chinese, Italian, and Syrian immigrants had on the economic, sociocultural, and political institutions. They explore themes of assimilation, race formation, and transnationalism to enrich our understanding not only of migration to Latin America but also of the impact of immigration on the construction of national identity.

In Latin American history, women have not only played key roles within the family and society, but have long been active participants in political and economic life. The explosion of research over the last fifteen years testifies to how much we still have to learn about their experiences. Women and Gender in Modern Latin America brings together selections from recent scholarship with excerpts from an exciting array of primary sources, many translated into English for the first time, to bring the story of women's involvement in modern Latin American history up to date.
Covering major developments in the region from the bitter wars of Spanish American independence (1810-1825) through the turn of the twenty-first century, this collection examines the expectations, responsibilities, and limitations that have confronted women in their varied roles. The book explores:
The nature and impact of feminist movements
Women's role in economic modernization and the gendered division of labor
Women's contributions to 20th-century nationalism and social revolutions
Changing gender roles and relations within marriage and the family
The impact of modern birth control methods and changing sexual mores
In the concise introductory essays, Pamela S. Murray synthesizes recent research to provide readers with a context for the selections in each chapter, including primary sources that range from trial records, legal codes, and other official documents to personal letters, excerpts from women's published writings, speeches, and images.
Whether for a course specifically on women in Latin America, or as an addition to a Modern Latin America survey course, Women and Gender in Modern Latin America provides a comprehensive overview of the experiences of women and workings of gender over time across a vast and diverse region.
