For a quarter of a century, Tulio Halperín Donghi's Historia Contemporánea de América Latina has been the most influential and widely read general history of Latin America in the Spanish-speaking world.

This is a great book that looks at the history of Latin America, but don't let the title fool you. It starts well before the "contemporary" period, and does a great job of explaining how the Latin America of the past became Contemporary Latin America.

The best book about the History of Latin America in English! A must have for all Latin American students.

This book for was for a graduate school course. Received in condition expected. Please it didn't have that old, musty smell like many older books. Thank you. Sad that a review now has a minimum word limit - I will probably not review anymore products after this batch.

Dornghi covers the period well in detail but the history is ongoing

The aim of the author, in this book, is to allow the reader to learn more about the Contemporary History of Latin America. His objective is quite difficult to achieve, because Latinoamerican countries are notably diverse, and their history is different. Despite that, Halperin Donghi accomplishes his objective very well, by highlighting the processes that those countries have in common, but without ignoring their differences.
"The Contemporary History of Latin America" is divided in nine chapters and an epilogue. At the beginning of each one, the author gives us a general overview of the economic and social developments common to the whole region, and afterwards he studies the political developments in each country. The book begins by an analysis of "The colonial heritage", and afterwards studies "The crisis of independence" (1810-1825), "The early national period" (1825-1850), the "Emergence of the neocolonial order" (1850-1880), the "Maturity of the neocolonial order" (1880-1930), and the problematic periods that followed: from 1930 to 1945 (economic crisis and preparations for the Second World War), from 1945 to 1960 (the postwar period), and from 1960 to 1970. Halperin Donghi also talks about events that happened not so long ago, and tries to be impartial. In my opinion, he succeeds...
This book isn't exhaustive, but it doesn't pretend to be so. In my opinion, it is a very good introduction to the History of Latin America, but it is only that: an introduction. You will need to go on reading, and studying, if you want to learn more about each country. On the other hand, even if you need to read more books, you might as well start by reading this one, because it is a classic on the subject.
"The Contemporary History of Latin America" isn't particularly entertaining, but it is very useful, and I think you should buy it, if you are interested in the history of the region. I prefer other books written by the author (for example "La democracia de masas"), but I am aware of the fact that this book is extraordinarily practical, and I appreciate it as a more than adequate framework for my studies regarding the Contemporary History of Latin America. I bought it, and I use it as a reference book. I advise you to do the same :)

It should be probably be called "The Contemporary Histories of Latin America." I read this book from the perspective of a generalist with an inclination to learn more about this subject, and I was not disappointed. The occasionally ponderous writing style is only a minor flaw- the book is translated from spanish to english, so I'm willing to cut everyone some slack. The jacket copy bills this as the most widely read single volume history of the area, and based on what I read I imagine it must be favored by universities in the U.S., Latin American and Europe to earn that title.

The history of Latin America encompasses three periods: the colonial period, the emergence of the nation state & the post WWI history of the nations. The idea of a shared "latin american history" for the first two time periods make sense, but only the fact that the nation states developed individual identities quite late in the time period covered makes the third part feel like anything more then a series of tacked on national histories.

As an American, it was interesting to read a take on U.S./Latin American relations that left beyond the Naomi Wolf style histronics of "Disaster Capitalism." I came away from this look feeling a little better about the U.S.'s mixed track record in Latin American foreign policy: It's quite impossible to blame the U.S. for any long term problems in the region- issues of economic underdevelopment and unstable politics have plagued Latin America from the very beginning.
Considering the unpretentiouness of this book regarding in-depth analysis, the prose could be less contrived and monotonous. The facts presented in the book, overall, were already familiar to me because I have been studying ths subject lately. I must say that the author's analyses, even if superficial, are worthy of respect - he clearly knows the subject and is not falling for hasty and inaccurate generalizations. When he generalizes, he says so.

Even then, I found the text incredibly boring and had to fight sleep while reading it. He could have added some spice to the text by mentioning a few anecdotes, some colorful examples, some interesting comparisons, etc. I gave it 3 stars because the text is too dry and this is unnecessary and undesirable considering its subject matter.
