Wars Of Latin America, 1899-1941 is a scholarly survey of turbulent conflict in Latin America during an era when border quarrels and domestic insurrections marked the difficult transition of nations from agrarian to industrial societies. Chapters discuss the war between Panama and Costa Rica; U.S. occupations of Cuba; Mexico's internal strife; the U.S.'s efforts against Pancho Villa; the phases of the Chaco War; the war between Peru and Colombia; the war between Peru and Ecuador; and much more. Black-and-white photographs illustrate the descriptive text, which tells of jungles, mountains, and deserts that were as deadly as any opposing force. A scrupulous and highly recommended text for college library and world history shelves.
