GUARDIAN: What If Latin America Ruled the World? by Oscar Guardiola-Rivera

BOOK REVIEW: "Oscar Guardiola-Rivera, a philosopher from Colombia who teaches at the University of London, seeks to make sense of this development in a book that ranges from the most obscure corners of prehistory to the most recent press cuttings of 2010. It is a large, rambling, anecdotal and ultimately confusing book, yet along the way it provides a handful of vignettes that illuminate and assist our understanding of an unfamiliar series of historical events. He starts by recalling a time, long before the Aztecs and the Incas, when the indigenous inhabitants of the Amazon basin were agents of their own history."
