"This readable and accessible text offers a thorough introduction to colonial and independence-era Latin America. Students will appreciate the volume's clear explanation of important terms and concepts and the use of specific events and figures to bring ideas to life. Professors will welcome Bakewell's judicious weaving of historical debates and competing interpretations into the analysis in a way that should connect the volume to supplementary readings. Photographic essays explaining Latin America's spaces and material culture are a welcome addition drawing attention to the importance of geography and material culture."
—Jordana Dym, Skidmore College
"A History of Latin America to 1825 offers the most comprehensive treatment in any language of the history of early Latin America. In this book Peter Bakewell does more than inform his readers of the richly complex history of colonial Spanish American and Brazil, he also explains – with constant verve and remarkable intellectual clarity –why things happened the way they did."
