Using a broad variety of textual and visual sources, Latin America and the First World War goes beyond traditional diplomatic history and analyzes the global dimension of the history of the Great War. Filling a significant gap in transnational histories of the war, Stefan Rinke addresses political, social, and economic aspects as well as the cultural impact of the war on Latin America and vice versa. Rinke's meticulous research is based on sources from the nineteen independent states of the entire subcontinent and promises to be the most comprehensive examination to date of Latin America before, during, and immediately after the war.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
'Stefan Rinke's wonderful book illustrates how political, economic, and social upheavals of war and revolution washed over Latin America and permanently changed the region's landscape. This book of remarkable breadth is full of insights onto how peripheral areas of the world coped with the European crisis. It captures what a global crisis looked like from distant shores.' Jeremy I. Adelman, Princeton UniversitySee more reviews
'Rinke's well-written and richly documented book will be the definitive treatment of Latin America's role in the 'Great War' for decades to come. This long-awaited and much-needed work will be required reading for all those who want to understand the First World War or the role of Latin America in global affairs.' Jurgen Buchenau, University of North Carolina, Charlotte
'Stefan Rinke's deeply researched volume proffers the broad Latin American dimension - hitherto lacking - of the most transformative conflict of the twentieth century. It is the kind of nuanced study that is needed about Latin America's role in the even more calamitous global conflagration twenty years later.' Philip Chrimes, International Affairs
