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 participants are conscious of the an important ways that the histories of Latin American countries—with their creole elites, hybrid center periods, subordinated ethnic teams, and complex old relationships with Spain and the United States—differ from these of alternative former colonies within the southern hemisphere. but, whereas acknowledging such ameliorations, the quantity indicates a number of provocative, severe connections to colonial and postcolonial histories round the world.
