SUMMARY Americanos Latin America's Struggle for Independence Pivotal Moments in World HistoryLd probably read it again if I wanted to brush up on the subject Do not judge this book by the overly academic prologue It actually gets off to a great start with an account of Humboldt s adventures in the Americas And a great job of setting up the cause of these simultaneous revolutions But the format of telling it chronologically and in multiple locations just wore me out Here we ave Hidalgo s and Morelos s battles in Mexico Meanwhile Bolivar is in Venezuela Oh and over in Buenos Aires I wanted to love it but after two thirds I couldn t go further It is an understatement to say it is no easy task to summarize the events resulting in independence for not JUST ONE OR TWO PARTS OF one or two parts of America but the entire region The result is a valuable attempt at a basic narrative of the events from approx 1800 to 1825 that made the vast majority of the region free from direct control by its European colonizers and begin to think of government in vastly different terms Aimed at readers who probably know little about these events the book also works for anyone wishing to refresh erhis knowledge and Provides Many Suggestions Of Additional many suggestions of additional if any part of the narrative excites youChasteen chose to write primarily in chronological order meaning The Sorcerers Soul he gives brief snippets of events in one location then in another and another and so on This certainlyelps to put events across the region into context with each other I am not sold on this as the best method to tell the istory
"One Reason For This Is "reason for this is does not always make clear ow events in one location affects those in another if they did at all except for Satans Mistress how events in Europe affected those in Latin America The movements in each region are sometimes vastly different and except for timing it is not easy to always concludeow they are related if at all The method also makes it difficult to follow the named persons of each narrative and gosh are. Vivid scene John Charles Chasteen introduces the reader to lead players basic concepts key events and dominant trends braided together in a single taut narrative He vividly depicts the individuals and events.
