Updates to the Third Edition include increased coverage of colonialism, refined and nuanced discussion of nationalism, expanded treatment of the Cuban Revolution, updated coverage of current political issues and economic policy, and discussion of migratory issues in a hemispheric context.
Born in Blood and Fire spans six centuries and covers twenty countries in a concise, compelling narrative of the Latin American experience animated by stories about men and women from all walks of life and enriched by insightful analysis. Rather than a country-by-country history, Chasteen takes a more integrative approach within a chronological outline. Chapters are broken down into recognizable periods from 1492 to the present.
