Latin America is a complex and fascinating place. Would you like to learn more about it? Then pay attention!
Just what is Latin America? How do you define it? Latin America comprises the Caribbean, South America, and Mexico. These regions are diverse in culture yet share a common bond of history that was forged when the Old World of Latin Europe met the New World of the Americas. This audiobook takes you through the history of this vast and complex region.
We will explore the days of pre-Columbian contact to European conquest, colonization, and subsequent Latin American independence. We follow the cataclysmic clash of civilizations when men like Hernán Cortés and Francisco Pizarro waged war on the Aztecs and Incas. We examine the subsequent merger of great and powerful civilizations such as these with the culture and lifestyles of their conquerors.
This audiobook then goes on to chronicle the complex development of the truly unique Latin American civilizations that followed. Discover what happened in Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Cuba, and all the points in between. This audiobook follows the triumphs and tragedies that made Latin America what it is today.
In this audiobook, you will learn more about:
- The pre-Columbian civilizations of Latin America
- First contact with European explorers and what the initial relationships were like with the Europeans
- The gall of the Aztec and Inca Empires and what happened to the people living there
- The colonization of Latin America
- The struggles for Latin American independence and the major figures involved
- The modernization of Latin America and how that led to Latin America as we know it today
- Latin America during the Cold War (it played a bigger role than you might think!)
- And much more!
