This collection of essays offers insightful confrontations with the colonial past of Latin America. It explores the binding historical legacies - the making of slavery, patrimonial absolutist states, backward agriculture and the imprint of the Enlightenment - with which Latin America continues to grapple. Leading scholars reflect on how this heritage emerged from colonial institutions and how historians have tackled these legacies over the years.
