Colonial Latin America (5th ed)

Author: Mark A. Burkholder & Lyman L. Johnson
Stars: 3
Review by: MandyApgar

A nicely academic, balanced, and readable account of life of the period. Apparently quite a renowned text (and deservedly so), it is indeed very balanced in handling the life styles of natives before and after outside impact without any demeaning of the subject on either side (unless violence becomes involved). Also good for its sections on women and children, the slave trade, and colonial church structure.
