Liberators of America

Felipe Pigna

NON FICTION. PLANETA, 2014. 288 PAGES

During the course of the Latin American wars of independence several leaders came to prominence whom history would hail as Liberators, perhaps to make the contrast with the Conquistadores who had until then dominated accounts of the New World. This book by Felipe Pigna explores the fascinating lives of Francisco de Miranda, Simón Bolívar, Bernardo O'Higgins, José Miguel Carrera, Manuel Belgrano and José de San Martín revealing the complexities of the wars of independence in an effort to understand the origins of what we know today as Latin America. The life stories of those who laid the foundations for the history of Latin America shine a light on the similarities, differences, agreements and conflicts that ran through the great Hispano-American revolution.
