This work measures up to the standards of solid scholarship that characterize other multivolume Cambridge histories. The international contributors are all reputable specialists and present competent, up-to-date surveys of their respective topics. After five chapters that analyze Latin American independence movements and make up approximately one-fourth of the text, 19th-century developments in the Caribbean, Mexico, Spanish South America, and Brazil are examined. Not only political aspects but also economic, social, intellectual, and cultural themes receive attention. The 19 maps are useful. Bibliographic essays evaluate both older and recent sources, including periodical literature. This is an indispensable work for readers from faculty members to public library patrons. Both graduate and upper-division undergraduate students will profit from its use.-D.M. Flusche, Eastern Michigan University
