A Cultural History of Latin America: Literature, Music and the Visual Arts in the 19th and 20th Centuries by Leslie Bethell (University of Oxford)

The Cambridge History of Latin America is a large scale, collaborative, multi-volume history of Latin America during the five centuries from the first contacts between Europeans and the native peoples of the Americas in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries to the present. A Cultural History of Latin America brings together chapters from Volumes III, IV, and X of The Cambridge History on literature, music, and the visual arts in Latin America during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Each chapter is accompanied by a bibliographical essay.
