War & Revolution in Spanish America

Much of the ‘Age of Revolution’ between the 1770s and the 1840s took place in Spanish America. I’ve written about Colombia’s war of independence from Spain, as well as the impact of the French Revolution in Spanish America. I’ve also studied small-scale local uprisings in colonial Colombia, and edited a collection of essays about civil wars across nineteenth-century Latin America.
