Review

""Indian Conquistadors" will turn the modern perception of the conquest of Mesoamerica on its head. Leading scholars present overwhelming evidence . . . that demonstrates the overwhelming importance of native allies during and after the Spanish Conquest."--Christopher H. Lutz, coauthor of "Demography and Empire: A Guide to the Population History of Spanish Central America, 1500-1821"
--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A first-rate book that avoids the mindless rant of so many who turn their attention to the issue of the Spanish conquest of Mesoamerica, this edited collection presents, in a series of ten essays (including the Introduction), a solid picture of the manner in which many (certainly not all) Native Americans participated as allies of Spaniards.

Format: Hardcover
In the ever expanding field of Latin American and Mesoamerican history, Indian Conquistadors builds on the theme as Indians as active players in Spain's conquest of the New World. The majority of the collection of essays focus on the military exploits and contributions of various Indian tribes and how their inter-tribal relations helped shape the Conquest, either through alliances with the Spanish to facilitate war against their enemies or as opposition against the Spanish. Also of interest is the essay on women which expands the scope of their influence beyond the role of translator as seen in La Malinche.

Content of book is fantastic. The actual printing looks extremely cheap. Felt I payed a little too much for a book that looks like it was printed in a garage.
