Full Description

This book analyzes the Americas, North and South, in the global and comparative arena, showing how these societies gazed each other and Europe as they followed the road to multiple forms of modernity and globalization. New insights are contributed on the ways in which reflected conceptions of modernity, with utopian overtones, influenced the ways in which politicians and intellectuals viewed their own societies, other societies in the New World, and the older nations of Europe.
