Describe Latin American between 1826 and 1920

I need support with this History question so I can learn better.

Describe Latin America between 1826 & 1920 (socially, politically and economically) the internal and external factors that led to those changes. (Export-oriented economic boom)

Economic system: what does Latin Amrica make and how? what food? who produced them?what labor systems were presented:slavery? forced labor, free labor? what countries purchased these exports? what did they imported, and who?

Political system: who runs Latin America an how?
