This book aims to emphasize the role, past and present, of Latin American countries in world history. The historical analysis can lead to perceptions to understand how, when, and why Latin American regions participated in various worldwide events and the participation that each played in the vast network of collaborative relationships and institutions that exists both on the Latin American subcontinent and between it and the rest of the world. History also leads us to understand past and current events by identifying the forces that either stimulated or hindered the role of various countries in the global change.
