    Reviews & endorsements

    "Volume 10 of the Cambridge History of Latin America merits the acclaim that greeted its forerunners… this volume is state-of-the-art…substantial and impressive achievements." - Bulletin of Latin American Research

    "…brings close to completion a project that has already succeeded in providing the most authoritative overview of the current state of Latin American historiography." - Journal of Latin American Studies

    "Volume 10 of the Cambridge History of Latin America crowns a remarkable historiographical achievement: the best scholarship available in English on Latin America from pre-Columbian times to the present by and international team of scholars.... an enduring testament to the maturity and continued vitality of the field of Latin American history.... All the essays are of outstanding quality.... provides a wealth of information about Latin American cultures but also, because of its focus on cultural identity in relation to modernity.... a useful criterion for understanding the internal dynamics of cultural expression in twentieth-century Latin America. This is a welcome ending to a monumental contribution to the field." - Hispanic American Historical Review
