The great civilizations of Latin America were devastated after the arrival of the conquistadors and later the European colonizers, who created a society that was characterized by extreme differences between rich and poor -- a legacy that continues to plague Latin America to a strong degree today. Although Latin American nations are no longer ruled by military dictatorships and have embraced democracy, social problems associated with the large income gap, such as poverty, landlessness and crime are pervasive. Latin America: Challenges in the 21st Century will increase student awareness of the origins, causes and effects of major global issues in the region. Part of the multivolume Global Issues for Students Video Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
