Cultural Hierarchy in Sixteenth-Century Europe: The Ottomans and Mexicans (Book)
Title: Cultural Hierarchy in Sixteenth-Century Europe: The Ottomans and Mexicans
Author: Carina L. Johnson
Abstract: This book argues that sixteenth-century European encounters with the newly discovered Mexicans (in the Aztec Empire) and the newly dominant Ottoman Empire can only be understood in relation to the cultural and intellectual changes wrought by the Reformation. The author chronicles the resultant creation of cultural hierarchy. Starting at the beginning of the sixteenth century, when ideas of European superiority were not fixed, this book traces the formation of those ideas through proto-ethnographies, news pamphlets, Habsburg court culture, gifts of treasure, and the organization of collections.

Allies at Odds: The Andean Church and Its Indigenous Agents, 1583-1671 (Book)
Title: Allies at Odds: The Andean Church and Its Indigenous Agents, 1583-1671
Author: John Charles
Abstract: Focusing on the highland parishes of the Lima archdiocese, John Charles explores the vital, often conflictive role indigenous agents played in the creation of Andean Christian society. Torn between their obligation to enforce colonial laws and their customary obligation to protect native communities from the colonizers' abuses, indios ladinos used the Spanish language to complicate the Church's efforts to evangelize on its own terms. Utilizing a vast body of literary activity, Allies at Odds provides perspective on the Spanish cultural values that shaped the literary activity of native Andeans and that native Andeans had a part in shaping.

Britain's Oceanic Empire: Atlantic and Indian Ocean Worlds, c. 1550-1850 (Book)
Title: Britain's Oceanic Empire: Atlantic and Indian Ocean Worlds, c. 1550-1850
Editor: Elizabeth Mancke
Editor: H.V. Bowen
Editor: John G. Reid
Abstract: This pioneering comparative study of British imperialism in the Atlantic and Indian Ocean worlds draws on the perspectives of British newcomers overseas and their native hosts, metropolitan officials and corporate enterprises, migrants and settlers. Leading scholars examine the divergences and commonalities in the legal and economic regimes that allowed Britain to project imperium across the globe. They explore the nature of sovereignty and law, governance and regulation, diplomacy, military relations and commerce, shedding new light on the processes of expansion that influenced the making of empire. While acknowledging the distinctions and divergences in imperial endeavours in Asia and the Americas - not least in terms of the size of indigenous populations, technical and cultural differences, and approaches to indigenous polities - this book argues that these differences must be seen in the context of what Britons overseas shared, including constitutional principles, claims of sovereignty, disciplinary regimes and military attitudes

The Elusive West and the Contest for Empire, 1713-1763 (Book) [show prizes]
Title: The Elusive West and the Contest for Empire, 1713-1763
Author: Paul Mapp
Abstract: The Elusive West and the Contest for Empire, 1713-1763 investigates eighteenth-century diplomacy involving North America and links geographic ignorance about the American West to Europeans' grand geopolitical designs. Breaking from scholars' traditional focus on the Atlantic world, Paul W. Mapp demonstrates the centrality of hitherto understudied western regions to early American history and shows that a Pacific focus is crucial to understanding the causes, course, and consequences of the Seven Years' War.
