Insisting at the serious worth of Latin American histories for recasting theories of postcolonialism, After Spanish Rule is the 1st number of essays by means of Latin Americanist historians and anthropologists to interact postcolonial debates from the viewpoint of the Americas. those essays expand and revise the insights of postcolonial reports in diversified Latin American contexts, starting from the narratives of eighteenth-century tourists and clerics within the sector to the prestige of indigenous intellectuals in present-day Colombia. The editors argue that the development of an array of singular histories on the intersection of specific colonialisms and nationalisms needs to develop into the severe undertaking of postcolonial history-writing.

Challenging the universalizing trends of postcolonial concept because it has built within the Anglophone academy, the members are aware of the the most important ways that the histories of Latin American countries—with their creole elites, hybrid heart periods, subordinated ethnic teams, and intricate ancient relationships with Spain and the United States—differ from these of alternative former colonies within the southern hemisphere. but, whereas acknowledging such modifications, the amount indicates a bunch of provocative, serious connections to colonial and postcolonial histories round the world.
