The War for Mexico's West: Indians and Spaniards in New Galicia, 1524-1550 (Book) [show prizes]
Title: The War for Mexico's West: Indians and Spaniards in New Galicia, 1524-1550
Author: Ida Altman
Abstract: The War for Mexico's West examines a dramatic, complex episode in the early history of New Spain. After the conquest of central Mexico Spaniards fanned out in several directions, first entering western Mexico--the future New Galicia--in 1524. A full-fledged expedition of conquest followed several years later, but Spaniards experienced considerable difficulties in trying to assert control over the ethnically and linguistically diverse societies of the region. Late in 1540 an uprising against Spanish rule attracted thousands of people from many indigenous communities. These events took place within the context of the complex politics of early New Spain in which such important figures as Hernando Cortés, Nuño de Guzmán, Pedro de Alvarado, Francisco Vázquez de Coronado, and don Antonio de Mendoza vied to fulfill their ambitions in the west. The book incorporates primary material reflecting indigenous perspectives and provides the first full-length account in English of these little-known events and their consequences for Indians and Spaniards.
