It is not always an easy read, and can be dense and academic. Lynch concentrates on the underlying causes of the spate of revolutions and wars which resulted in the independence of most of Spanish America in the early 19th century. Many of those causes are economic, and Lynch dives right in with descriptions of trade deficits, taxation, capital investment, etc.

Not always light reading, but very informative. I found that the best way to engage with the book was to read sections out loud. For example: "Mexico was pure colony. Spaniard ruled creole, creole used Indian, and the metropolis exploited all three. In the course of the eighteenth century Mexican silver production rose continuously from five million pesos in , past the boom of the s and an increase from twelve million to eighteen million pesos a year, to a peak of twenty-seven million in Beginning with Rio de la Plata, from which emerged Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, then moving west to Chile, then to the Northern part of South America, from which emerged Venezuela, Colombia, and Ecuador, then to the Spanish stronghold of Peru, which could only be liberated from Spain with military pressure from Chile and Argentina in the south, and Colombia in the north.

Bolivia was originally known as "Upper Peru", and spun off as a separate country basically because its mine owners could not bear to be controlled by either Peru or Argentina.

Mexico followed its own path to independence. Spain was not interested in keeping Central American colonies without Mexico, so they became independent by default, initially attempting to form a federation with its capital in Guatemala, which broke apart after only a few years. The only Spanish colonies that remained after were the islands of Cuba and Puerto Rico. He was one of the few Latin American revolutionaries who seemed to be motivated by idealism and patriotism as opposed to pure self and class interest though he was very wary of giving power to Blacks and Indians, believing that they had an understandable hatred for ruling class whites.

He was the son of a rich Venezuelan creole family, with a brilliant mind and a great talent for leadership. But his idea quickly gave way to the reality of suspicion and differing interests between the powerful groups in the various regions. In the end, Venezuela remained as a separate nation, Guayaquil came to be known as Ecuador, and all that remained of Gran Colombia was New Granada which was re-named Colombia and ruled for a time by Bolivar. Bolivar also led troops in the liberation of Peru, and later, as one of the few trusted figures in the region became ruler of Upper Peru which was named Bolivia in his honor.

This too was not to be. Although there were separate wars for independence in the various regions, this book does a great job of stitching them together and giving a clear view of the common factors and interactions that caused the entire hemisphere to become independent in the course of less than twenty years.

The font is tiny, blurry and faded in places. It seems to be the result of several generations of photo-copying, or maybe a reject from a defective printing press. Not sure how a reputable publisher could put its name on this.
