These essays examine major sources behind the history of the Spanish conquest and colonisation of Mexico (Aztec), the Yucatan Peninsula (Maya) and Peru (Inca). In doing so they explore varous themes, including source criticism, European views of the 'other', the structural strengths of indigenous societies, and the relative effectiveness of different methods of conversion. Investigation also highlights Spanish atrocities, and popular opinion's impact on land ownership and governmental legislation.
