BERNSTEIN, HARRY (1909–1993), U.S. historian. Born and educated in New York City, in 1958 he became professor of history at Brooklyn College. Bernstein's historical interests covered the post-18th century in geographical areas such as Mexico, Brazil, and the Caribbean. He emphasized regional factors in historical development. This approach appears in his textbook Modern and Contemporary Latin America (1952). Among his other works are Origins of Inter-American Interest, 17001812 (1945), a pioneer study of economic and political ties between Pennsylvania, New York, and New England and portions of the Spanish Empire in America; Dom Pedro II (1973); Venezuela and Colombia (1974); The Brazilian Diamond in Contracts, Contraband, and Capital (1988); and The Lord Mayor of Lisbon (1989).
