From the beginning of the twentieth century through 1941, Latin
America was involved in a number of conflicts and revolutions, many
of which escalated into what could truly be called wars. Border
disputes and domestic insurrections shaped the history of this area
as many countries made the rocky transition from agrarian to
industrial societies. Beginning with the War of the Thousand Days,
this volume provides a concise survey of Latin American wars
between 1899 and 1941.
