HIS* 262: Modern Latin America

3 Credits
This course is a survey of Latin American history from the early-nineteenth century to the present day. It is designed to introduce students to significant issues and trends in the region, broadly defined as lands in the western hemisphere south of the Rio Grande, including the Caribbean islands. The course is organized chronologically and will emphasize three major themes. It will begin with the end of the colonial period by examining the process of state formation as the region emerged from three centuries of European colonialism. It also will examine the impact of U.S. influence on Latin America, particularly from the late-nineteenth century to the present. The third major theme the course will address is the phenomenon and consequences of revolution during the twentieth century.
