Volume VI brings together general essays on major themes in the economic, social, and political history of Latin America from 1930 to 1990. It begins with a chapter on population growth, followed by four chapters on the economies of Latin American states from the Depression to 1990. The evolution of urban and rural social structures, and of state organization, is discussed. There is a chapter on the role of the military in Latin American politics as well as a chapter on democracy during the period. The role of the Left in Latin American politics, labour movements and the urban working class, and rural mobilization and violence are analyzed, as is the role of women in twentieth - century Latin American economy, society, and politics. The volume concludes with a discussion of the actions and importance of the Catholic and Protestant Churches.
