Editorial Reviews

Review

"Roa-de-la-Carrera has done an excellent job of picking through the very complex world of ideas that López de Gómara inherited. While not entirely sympathetic to his subject, Roa-de-la-Carrera does attempt to present him in an objective light by looking at the influences under which he wrote and the countervailing discourses that surround him."
—John F. Schwaller, Hispanic American Historical Review


"Cristián Roa-de-la-Carrera's book makes an important contribution to the study of colonial Latin American literature by helping to fill [a] gap, integrating close study of Gómara's work into current debates about the tradition of renaissance historical writing about the Americas....Roa-de-la-Carrera fleshes out a broader argument about Spanish imperialism in the sixteenth century and the ethical debates that proved to be of paramount importance to intellectuals and writers both in the peninsula and the New World."
—Patricio Boyer, The Americas


"Roa-de-la-Carrera deftly teases out the thorny issues that a pro-imperialist historian had to address: the greed and violence of the conquistadors, the place of the indigenous populations in Christian world history and in the new cultural and economic system of colonization, the vicissitudes of church and crown policies regarding the role of conquistadors and Indians....Roa-de-la-Carrera's study is carefully researched, developed, and written."
—Kathleen Myers, American Historical Review
