Ethnic rebellions continually disrupted the Pax Colonial, Spain's three-hundred-year rule over the Native peoples of Mexico. Although these uprisings varied considerably in cause, duration, consequences, and scale, they collectively served as a constant source of worry for the Spanish authorities. This meticulously researched volume provides both a valuable overview of Native uprisings in New Spain and a stimulating reevaluation of their significance. Running counter to the prevailing scholarly tendency to emphasize similarities among ethnic revolts, the seven contributors examine episodes of rebellion that are distinguished by their ethnic, geographical, and historical diversity, ranging culturally and geographically across colonial New Spain and spanning the last two centuries of Spanish rule. Unparalleled access to colonial archival sources also enables the writers to more fully consider indigenous perspectives on resistance and explore in greater detail than before the precipitating factors and effects of different forms of protest. A provocative concluding essay balances this line of inquiry by investigating how a shared cultural disposition toward violence in colonial New Spain contributed to the atmosphere of ethnic tension and rebellion. Susan Schroeder is a professor of history at Loyola University. She is the author of Chimalpahin and the Kingdom of Chalco and the coeditor of the forthcoming Indian Women in Early Mexico.

"This book demonstrates conclusively that the Guarani were as instrumental in determining their destinies as were the Catholic Church and Spanish bureaucrats. They were neither passive victims of Spanish colonialism nor innocent "children" of the jungle, but important actors who shaped fundamentally the history of the Rio de la Plata region. The author suggests that a multiplicity of cultural processes helped condition the encounter between the Guarani and the Spaniards. The Guarani responded to European contact according to the dynamics of their own culture, their individual interests and experiences, and the changing political, economic, and social realities of the late Bourbon period." "More broadly, the book permits a rigorous comparison with studies by ethnohistorians of Mexico, Peru, and other parts of Latin America, and it furthers our understanding of the dialectics of colonialism and native peoples both in the past and present."--BOOK JACKET.

Die Geschichte der vorspanischen Hochkulturen Amerikas, insbesondere die der Azteken, Maya und Inka und ihrer Vorläufer, faszinierte lange Zeit schon, weil sie geheimnisvoller, unbekannter erschien als die der Alten Welt. Forschungsfortschritte der letzten Jahrzehnte, vor allem die Entzifferung der Maya-Hieroglyphenschrift, brachten ungeahnte neue Erkenntnisse. Dem trägt die völlig neu bearbeitete und um beinahe ein Drittel erweiterte Auflage der "Geschichte Altamerikas" Rechnung, in der nun auch in das Schicksal der indianischen Bevölkerung unter der spanischen Kolonialherrschaft eingeführt wird. Zur ersten Auflage: "Mit großer Sachkenntnis und in gut lesbarer Sprache schildert Prem in kompakter Form die gesicherten Kenntnisse über die Geschichte der beiden Kulturräume von der Vorgeschichte bis zur spanischen Eroberung." Horst Pietschmann, FAZ
