HIST 1064 Latin America in the World II (Spring: 3 )
The course looks at the development of modern Latin America through the examination of revolutions that took place throughout the Americas from the late 18th through the early 21st centuries. The independence of United States from England failed as a model for political, economic, and social change in Latin America. Through an understanding of the Haitian Revolution, the Independence movements of the Spanish Americas, Brazil's break from Portuguese authority, the struggle for Cuban Independence in the late 19th century, the Mexican Revolution, and the socialist revolutions in 20th century Latin America, we will trace the development of modern Latin America.
