Editorial Reviews

Review

Another Face of Empire incontrovertibly adds to general understanding of Bartolomé de Las Casas. Daniel Castro persuasively argues that Las Casas contributed substantially to the establishment of Spanish imperial hegemony in the Americas in the first century after the conquests.”—Franklin W. Knight, editor of Bartolomé de Las Casas’s An Account, Much Abbreviated, of the Destruction of the Indies


“Father Las Casas offered what all empires need: a sense of their own moral legitimacy. This book forthrightly unmasks the imperial gift-giver. It should be read by all colonialists and those who study human rights issues.”—Colin M. MacLachlan, John Christie Barr Distinguished Professor of History, Tulane University

Format: Paperback
I really want to like this book. Castro approaches his study of Las Casas and his writings from a fresh post-colonial post-modern perspective but this book is a bit frustrating. When I was writing a critique of Las Casas' Brevisima Relacion I used it as one of my main secondary sources. I found that Castro had several really good ideas and observations, but as I was using the book to write my paper I kept finding that it was a difficult book to use for this purpose. Although there are a few really good ideas they tend to be littered throughout the book in no logical way -I mean to say that Castro tends to repeat the same ideas throughout the book but most of the time only restating the ideas without expanding on them very much and one cannot predict based on the titles of the chapters nor chronology of the book where one of these ideas will be expanded on instead of simply being restated. Furthermore, where the ideas are expanded and discussed I feel Castro could have provided a little more proof, done a little more convincing. If you're trying to write an essay about Las Casas from a contemporary perspective you should consult this book, just don't make it your main source.
