Lists with This Book. Jul 20, Tom Oman rated it it was amazing. I have to say, they do a very thorough job of colpnial the various aspects of the colonial era in Latin America. But they really could not have made it any less interesting. It is written well enough but they pound it all into your head to the point where yes, you are certainly well informed, but definitely left uninspired.
The reality is, this was one of the most enthralling times in human history and colonia, clash of civilization and the implications of conquest and empire are fascinating.
Howev I have to say, they do a very thorough amerixa of discussing the various aspects of the colonial era in Latin America. However, this is just an exhaustive account of the various aspects of the colonial administration and the breakdown of different levels of government and the economy and so on. It is all offered up in a dry tone, but to their credit it never bogs down too badly.
It is well structured and flows well from one topic to the next. I know it is basically a text-book and written for an academic audience, but I felt like it was missing something. It failed to paint a holistic picture including the banditry and greed and the wild and exciting coloniql of life and society in the New World.
Colonial Latin America
Layin do not have to be as dull as this, but when they are you really have no bkrkholder to blame but yourself. Jun 16, Scott rated it liked it. Burkholder and Johnson survey the history of Latin America from before the Spanish and Portuguese conquests to the independence of most of Latin America. Along the way, they analyze labor relations, family life, social class, and much more. There’s a ton of information in this book, with a basically chronological organization for the pre-conquest period and conquests at the burkholdeer of the book and, at the end of the book, the expansion of the settlements and the controls by the Spanish and Port Aemrica and Johnson survey the history of Latin America from before the Spanish americca Portuguese conquests to the independence of most of Latin America.
There’s a ton of information in this book, with a basically chronological organization for the pre-conquest period and conquests at the beginning of the book and, at the end of the book, the expansion of the settlements and the controls by the Spanish and Portuguese governments leading up to the tumultuous period of the Napoleon’s invasion of the Iberian peninsula that led eventually to independence.
The middle was organized topically, and this would be my only complaint about the book. This section was a bit harder to follow and make links because different trends like social classes, the economy, and others were separated out from each other. That may have been unavoidable, though.
I’m still in the early stages of learning and the authors have made a career of it.
Apr 23, Jessica rated it really liked it Shelves: Nov 16, Judah rated it liked it Shelves: This book is packed with useful information about Latin America’s political lwtin social development.
And when i say “packed” I mean literally, information is just jam-PACKED into long, complicated sentences, with the authors barely skipping a beat between each point. Lahin can barely breathe now just thinking about it. That said, although it is certainly densely written, if you try hard enough you’ll learn some important stuff about Spanish colonialism.
Mar 10, Tabitha burkhokder it liked it. Fascinating book, though very, very dense and not a good pick for light reading. It covers the centuries before European arrival in South America and goes through the continent’s independence from Europe in the nineteenth century.
Breaks down the various elements of colonial life–religious, economic, social, etc. Absolutely great for anyone interested in South America or colonialism. Jan 25, Colonixl rated it it was ok.
I really enjoyed the thematic chapters, which earn 3. The chronological ones infuriated me, as many textbooks do: Many kids find history dull because of this kind of structure.
Nonfiction writing, thank god, is getting better and better; unfortunately, this was mostly a snooze! Dec 13, Andrew rated it liked it.
To be honest, the book was boring and only finished it as a supplement to the professor’s lectures which were fair more interesting and passionate. Only reason why it has three stars instead of one or two is because of how interesting Latin America is.
