Some brief overview of book

Social movements and armed insurrections were exceptionally widespread in 20th century Latin America, and continue to be important to this day. Few countries avoided the wave of political upheavals and social instability, as well as the government's repressive answer to them. And over the last decade, there has been a great increase in the amount of work being written on various movements or groups.

The book includes coverage of: the Shining Path the Cuban Revolution Campesinos and agrarian struggles in Bolivia the rise of dictatorships in Haiti and the Dominican Republic the Cold War in Mexico the Allende years in Chile and many more!

Following a broadly chronological course, Revolutions and Social Movements in Modern Latin America will be indispensable to anyone teaching or studying revolutions in modern Latin America.
