The Independence of Latin America is a selection of chapters from the Cambridge History of Latin America Volume 3. The first chapter deals with the origins of independence from Spain; the next two consider the struggle for independence in Mexico and Central America and in Spanish South America. The independence of Brazil is discussed in a separate chapter, while the final chapters examine the relationship of the newly independent countries with the rest of the world and the role of the Church in the independence of Latin America.
