Argentina : what went wrong by Colin M MacLachlan( )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why has Argentina failed so spectacularly, both economically and politically? It is a puzzle because the country seemed to have all the requirements for greatness. Its failure raises the specter that other middle-class societies could also fail. In "Argentina", Colin MacLachlan delivers history with a plot, a sense of direction and purpose, and fascinating conclusions that reveal a much more complex picture of Argentina than one might have had in mind prior to reading his book. "Argentina" traces the roots of the nation from the late colonial period to the present, and examines the impact of events that molded it: the failure of political accommodation in 1912, the role of the oligarchy, the development of a middle class, gender issues, the elaboration of a distinct culture, the era of Peron, the army, and the "dirty war."--Publisher's description

El Gran Pueblo : a history of greater Mexico by Colin M MacLachlan( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on the belief that people - not institutions - make history, this narrative of the history of Mexican people examines the challenges they have faced since independence, telling of their resiliency and creative character during the years of political and economic changes. El Gran Pueblo examines national boundaries not as barriers but as the setting of complex interactions, resulting in the convergence of cultures; and, in doing so, reveals the Mexican experience not only in Mexico but in what is today the southwestern United States."--Jacket
Imperialism and the origins of Mexican culture by Colin M MacLachlan( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a wide-ranging interpretive history of two imperialisms--Indian Mesoamerica and Old World Spain leading to New Spain (Mexico today, though New Spain of course covered a significant portion of what is now the United States)--and how mestizo culture was created when the two collided in the sixteenth century. Colin MacLachlan traces the long history of each empire, from tribal origins to vast political entities that spread far beyond their borders, encompassing and absorbing other cultures. Each empire, with justification, believed itself to be the carrier of a great civilization. The peoples of the two civilizations turned to a religious framework to understand their existence, organize life at all levels, and legitimize their land and rule. The author argues that when the Spanish conquerors arrived in the New World, Mesoamerica was at a critical turning point, on the verge of developing a feudal society not unlike the one that developed in Europe. The destruction of Tenochtitlán, the discrediting of the indigenous gods, and the onslaught of epidemic diseases allowed the Spanish, in a relatively short time, to establish not only physical but also psychological control across Mesoamerica, where the ruling Aztecs concluded that their gods had deserted them. By putting in place a Christian paradigm, Spain radically reoriented Indo-Mexico's historical trajectory. The various elements of pre-Spanish Indo-Mexico had to be fitted with those of a Castile just emerging from the Reconquista, with the fall of Granada in 1492. Christianity was foundational to Spain's imperial identity at the time, and was exported to New Spain. Full Christianization failed from a doctrinal standpoint, though it succeeded in disrupting the belief system"--Provided by the publisher
