"Burkholder, Johnson, and Rankin offer a compelling and provocative interpretation of Latin American history. This magisterial work is the product of decades of study and reflection by historians who have lived and researched in many Latin American countries. It is unique in its range of subjects and sophistication of analysis. This fine one-volume synthesis of Latin America, which moves deftly over the centuries, covers a broad range of topics including race, politics, economics, religion, urban and rural life, education, art, and literature."--Jaime E. Rodríguez Ordóñez, University of California, Irvine
"Exploitation, Inequality, and Resistance is a sweeping, well-written tour de force of Latin American history since Columbus's voyage, paying due attention to social, cultural, political, and economic developments. It is required reading for undergraduate students and general readers alike."--Jurgen Buchenau, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
"This book is outstanding. It is the product of three major figures in the field, written in an exceedingly clear, accessible, and readable style, and impeccably organized and researched."--Peter Klaren, George Washington University
"The authors have managed to provide a survey of a complex region from its early colonial period to the present, and have done so elegantly and in a way that students--most of whom have no experience with Latin America or the Caribbean--will easily understand."--Teresita Levy, Lehman College
