Editorial Reviews

?Randle looks at the pros and cons of controversial topics in Latin America and Spain, examining not only familiar controversies--Columbus and the discovery, immigration, the Columbian drug cartel--but also areas that are of great interest in Spain and Latin America, not the United States. It is this multicultural perspective that makes the book particularly valuable....[t]his volume is packed with material written by a well-informed writer.??Multicultural Review
