Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Most high-school and college survey texts for U.S. history continue an Anglocentric approach, although recent efforts have been made to acknowledge the contribution of non-English and non-European groups to our cultural heritage. A giant swath of current U.S. territory, from California to Florida, was once part of the Spanish Empire, and subsequently much of it was part of the Mexican Republic. Fernandez-Armesto, a professor of history at Notre Dame, provides a useful and absorbing counterperspective. He utilizes a chronological approach beginning with the first Spanish explorers and conquistadors in the sixteenth century and finally analyzes the effects of the current “second Hispanic colonization” as our Latino population surges. He touches on various aspects of Latin American achievements and contributions to our country. His assertions that the U.S. should be and soon will be viewed as part of the broader Spanish-speaking American continents is unlikely to win broad acceptance but will certainly provoke interesting debate. --Jay Freeman


A rich and moving chronicle . Perhaps the first history to make the case for this nation s becoming a bright Latin American country. --Julio Ortega"

A valuable contribution to those seeking a broader understanding of U.S. history. --Janet Napolitano"

Exceedingly well-written and engaging. --Hector Tobar"

In enviably lyrical prose, Felipe Fernandez-Armesto has written a bold and compelling synthesis of our nation s Hispanic past, from the Spanish arrival in the late fifteenth century to the current and contentious debate over immigration reform. Marshaling famous and forgotten individuals and events, he reminds us that there is much more to America s story than simply Massachusetts Pilgrims and Virginia Cavaliers. --Andrew R. Graybill, director, Clements Center for Southwest Studies, Southern Methodist University"

Triumphantly rescues Hispanic America from obscurity. "

With a lucid, engaging style, [Fernandez-Armesto] seeks to understand the continuity between the Spanish colonization and the fight for justice led by the Chicano movement in the sixties and by immigration advocates today This is an invitation to look at America in full! --Ilan Stavans, general editor of The Norton Anthology of Latino History"
