Format: Paperback
In what is today's Antigua in Guatemala, Santiago de Guatemala, 1541-1773: City, Caste, and the Colonial Experience is a study of urban demographics and social change over time. In the first phase, the separation of the two "republics" is indicated by the Spanish core surrounded by the indigenous barrios. What follows is the rise of a racially mixed population of gente ordinaria leading to a large middle group of people "increasingly homogenized in both socioracial and cultural terms." (157) As this casta grew in size it took over the barios. The Indian and Spanish sectors of the "republics" gave way to the interaction of people living in close proximity to each other. The author makes use of a valuable cross-index file created by Don Josaquin Pardo at the Archivo General de Centroamerica (AGCA) in Guatemala City.
