The book features sociocultural sections and boxes in nearly every chapter, covering such diverse areas as the psychology of exile, Santería in Cuba, baseball in the Dominican Republic, and the popularity of Latin music in the U.S. All political and economic information has been updated. As in earlier editions, the authors use an in-depth case study approach that guides readers through the major countries of Latin America, highlighting central themes including European-New World interaction, racial mixtures, military takeovers, and United States intervention in the area. With an insightful look into the future, Modern Latin America, Sixth Edition, will continue to be an exceptional text for undergraduate courses on contemporary Latin American history, society, and politics. -- Publisher's description
The Cambridge encyclopedia of Latin America and the Caribbean by Simon Collier( Book )

37 editions published between 1985 and 1992 in English and held by 3,172 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( )

31 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and Portuguese and held by 2,590 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
The politics of military rule in Brazil, 1964-85 by Thomas E Skidmore( )

27 editions published between 1988 and 2004 in English and Portuguese and held by 2,012 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
Politics in Brazil, 1930-1964 : an experiment in democracy by Thomas E Skidmore( Book )

61 editions published between 1967 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,423 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 Idea of race in Latin America, 1870-1940 by Rick Graham( Book )

24 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in English and held by 1,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the mid-nineteenth century until the 1930s, many Latin American leaders faced a difficult dilemma regarding the idea of race. On the one hand, they aspired to an ever closer connection to Europe and North America, where during much of this period "scientific" thought condemned the nonwhite races to an inferior category. Yet, with the heterogeneous racial makeup of their societies clearly before them and a growing sense of national identity impelling consideration of national futures, Latin American leaders hesitated. What to do? Whom to believe? Latin American political and intellectual leaders' sometimes anguished responses to these dilemmas form the subject of The Idea of race in Latin America (from back cover)

Published to wide acclaim in 1974, Thomas E. Skidmore's intellectual history of Brazilian racial ideology has become a classic in the field. Available for the first time in paperback, this edition has been updated to include a new preface and bibliography that surveys recent scholarship in the field. Black into White is a broad-ranging study of what the leading Brazilian intellectuals thought and propounded about race relations between 1870 and 1930. In an effort to reconcile social realities with the doctrines of scientific racism, the Brazilian ideal of ""whitening""--The theory that the Br

Television, politics, and the transition to democracy in Latin America by Thomas E Skidmore( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first book about television and electoral politics in Latin America, Television, Politics, and the Transition to Democracy in Latin America summarizes the relationships of the media and politics in Latin America, discusses television's role in political change throughout the world, and assesses the history of broadcast media and politics in Latin America. Case studies on the 1988 Chilean plebiscite that decided that free elections would be resumed and on three presidential campaigns - Mexico 1988, Brazil 1989, and Argentina 1989 - illustrate television as the most important medium of political information and the most powerful communications instrument in political campaigns. Twelve media analysts from the United States and Latin America examine the power and limitations of television in the new democratic era, drawing on new public opinion data, viewer surveys, and content analysis to interpret a subject too often investigated only through anecdote or impression. With the return to democracy, the ways in which public opinion is formed, measured, and reported will be crucial in determining whether democracy succeeds or fails
