Colonial Latin America
(Mark A. Burkholder, Lyman L. Johnson)
Now in its fifth edition, Colonial Latin America provides a concise study of the history of the Iberian colonies in the New World from their preconquest background to the wars of independence in the early nineteenth century. The new edition of this highly acclaimed text has been extensively revised and updated to reflect the latest scholarship, with particular emphasis on social and cultural history. Discussions of race and ethnicity, gender, family, marriage, and popular culture have been expanded and illustrated with many new pieces of art, and end-of-chapter chronologies are now included. Colonial Latin America, 5/e, is indispensable for students who wish to gain a deeper understanding of the fascinating and often colorful history of the cultures, the people, and the struggles that have played a part in shaping Latin America.

The Buried Mirror: Reflections on Spain and the New World
(Carlos Fuentes)
As the Los Angeles Times said: "Drawing expertly on five centuries of the cultural history of Europe and the Americas, Fuentes seeks to capture the spirit of the new, vibrant, and enduring civilization [in the New World] that began in Spain." Fuentes's singular success in this remarkable endeavor has made the book a classic in its field.
