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

New approaches to Latin American history by Richard Graham( Book )

10 editions published between 1974 and 2012 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New Approaches to Latin American History incorporates methods and concepts from the social sciences without abandoning a distinctively historical approach. A collection of original essays by distinguished younger scholars, it proposes original concepts and methods for analyzing crucial problems in Latin American history. Using as examples such subjects as slavery, dictatorship, immigration, and the relationship between land ownership and political power, the contributors show how approaches and techniques from psychology, political science, economics. and sociology can be applied to historical studies. The papers attempt to explain the thematic and substantive importance of the particular problems at hand; describe and evaluate standard approaches to them; propose original hypotheses; suggest methods for testing the hypotheses; or indicate major methodological or conceptual difficulties that have so far hampered such work. Despite their diversity of content, the papers show strong underlying unities. First, they all point to the need for placing institutions and actions in a broad societal context. The authors present an implicit, cumulative argument against the excessive isolation of historical phenomena. Second, they demonstrate the utility of interdisciplinary research. Third, they issue an implicit call for rigorous comparative analysis. The propositions formulated in these essays can best tested and modified in comparative fashion. Ultimately this book deals with the exposition of a research style: a style based on systematic doubt, an awareness of the need for conceptual rigor, and a willingness to try new methodologies. For this reason it is of interest to historians in every field as well as to students of Latin America

Latin America in comparative perspective : new approaches to methods and analysis by Peter H Smith( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, the inaugural publication in a multivolume series entitled Latin America in Global Perspective, highlights the necessity and feasibility of analyzing Latin American society and politics within broad comparative frameworks. The rapidly changing agenda for social science research on the region calls for the rigorous application of new concepts and methodologies, especially in light of the apparent exhaustion of the "dependency" paradigm. The examination of broad themes, such as development strategies and processes of democratization, can be facilitated through systematic comparisons with other world regions, and the study of specific issues--such as electoral behavior or social inequality--requires the judicious use of quantitative measurement. The question, therefore, is not only what to investigate but also how. This volume brings together original research by distinguished scholars from a variety of countries. Analytical chapters explore methodological strategies for cross-regional comparison, intraregional comparison, and the application of rational choice; topical chapters offer new approaches to the study of women, state power, corporatism, and political culture. A concluding section examines the political significance of public opinion research in Mexico, Peru, and the former Soviet Union.--Publisher description
