Historia General de America Latina
 



The General History of Latin America is a far-reaching intellectual project developed by UNESCO to provide the international academic community with the first history of the region written from a truly universal perspective.

The General History of Latin America may be seen as a comprehensive scientific work giving a picture of ideas and civilizations, societies and institutions covering the development of Latin American societies from the pre-Columbian era to the twentieth century.

This 9-volume project is the fruit of the work of some 240 historians and experts, directed by an International Scientific Committee consisting of prominent researchers and scholars from all over the world.
