Modern Latin America by Thomas E Skidmore( Book )

94 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 4,621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The leading survey in its field, this lively interpretive history has been brought up to date in all areas, especially in its treatment of recent developments in this vastly important region. The new edition examines the implications of the end of the Cold War on U.S.-Latin American relations, such recent developments as international drug trafficking, and the ongoing trend away from authoritarian regimes towards civilian leaders and elected governments. The authors illustrate such central themes as European-Indian and European-African interaction, large-scale immigration in the late 19th and 20th centuries, populist political leadership, military takeovers, and U.S. intervention in Latin America, examining the influence of economic forces and social tensions on political conflict in each case and discusses recent economic developments in clear, jargon-free language. Lucidly written and enhanced by insights from social science, Modern Latin America remains the preeminent treatment of this crucial subject."--Jacket
The Cambridge encyclopedia of Latin America and the Caribbean( Book )

30 editions published between 1985 and 1992 in English and held by 3,353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From geology and biology to cinema and the theatre, this ambitious thematic encyclopedia, unique in scope and style, provides a much needed one-volume account of all aspects of Latin America and the Caribbean. Written by some fifty recognised experts in clear and accessible language for the general reader and copiously illustrated with full colour photographs, it discusses general themes as well as the individual countries in their own right. Ranging from contemporary economic problems, such as the debts of Brazil, Argentina and Mexico, and events of international political importance, such as the revolutions in Cuba and Nicaragua, through surveys of the flora and fauna, and the emergence of first human societies to the traditions of the samba and tango, writers such as Neruda, Borges and Garcia Marquez, and the potent production of the Mexican muralists, the Encyclopedia depicts lands and peoples which have long represented a distant enigma for the outside world but can no longer remain ignored by it
Brazil : five centuries of change by Thomas E Skidmore( Book )

30 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and Portuguese and held by 1,466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Indispensable introductory survey of Brazilian history, 1500-1998. Pre-1930 history is treated as background. Second half is an outstanding narrative of politics and economic policy from 1930-present. Accessible to students and general readers. Particularly interesting are the book's final chapters, which seem to be addressed more to the conscience of the Brazilian ruling class than to foreign readers. Includes bibliographical essay, but one much less dense than typically found in Oxford Univ. Press one-volume histories of Latin American nations"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
Politics in Brazil, 1930-1964 : an experiment in democracy by Thomas E Skidmore( Book )

58 editions published between 1967 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A thorough study of Brazilian politics from 1930 to 1964, this book begins with Getúlio Vargas' fifteen-year-rule - the latter part of which was a virtual dictatorship - and traces the following years of economic difficulty and political turbulence, culminating in the explosive coup d'etat that overthrew the constitutional government of President João Goulart and profoundly changed the nature of Brazils' political institutions. The first book by Thomas E. Skidmore, Politics in Brazil, 1930-1964, immediately became the definitive political history in English and in Portuguese of those turbulent times. It was published by OUP in 1967 in hardcover but it has been out of print in recent years. For this 40th anniversary, James Green, who is Skidmore's literary executive and successor at Brown University, has written a new foreword for the book, placing it in the context of the literature
The politics of military rule in Brazil, 1964-85 by Thomas E Skidmore( Book )

22 editions published between 1988 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The largest and most important country in Latin America, Brazil was the first to succumb to the military coups that struck that region in the 1960s and the early 1970s. In this authoritative study, Thomas E. Skidmore, one of America's leading experts on Latin America and, in particular, on Brazil, offers the first analysis of more than two decades of military rule, from the overthrow of Joco Goulart in 1964, to the return of democratic civilian government in 1985 with the presidency of Josi Sarney. A sequel to Skidmore's highly acclaimed Politics in Brazil, 1930-1964, this volume explores the military rule in depth ... Skidmore's study provides insight into the nature of this transition in Brazil and what it may tell about the fate of democracy in the Third World."--Publisher description
