Book Description

1 Aug 2001 Dialogos
This broadly gauged, synthetic study examines how the Spanish invasion of the Inca Empire (called Tawintinsuyu) in 1532 brought dramatic and irreversible transformations in traditional Andean modes of production, technology, politics, religion, culture, and social hierarchies. At the same time, Professor Andrien explains how the indigenous peoples merged these changes with their own political, socio-economic, and religious traditions. In this way European and indigenous life ways became intertwined, producing a new and constantly evolving hybrid colonial order in the Andes. After beginning with a study of Tawintinsuyu on the eve of the Spanish invasion, Andrien then presents the salient topics in Andean colonial history: the emergence of the colonial state; the colonial socio-economic order; indigenous culture and society; Spanish attempts to impose Roman Catholic orthodoxy; and Andean resistance, rebellion, and political consciousness. By drawing on his own research and the contributions from scholars in many disciplines, Kenneth J. Andrien offers a masterful interpretation of Andean colonial history, one of the most dynamic and creative fields in Latin American studies.

Product Description


""Andean Worlds" would serve as an excellent introduction to Andean colonial history and/or Indigenous culture, history, economics, and politics. This book would also be of interest to those interested in colonial studies more generally. . . . Few scholars are able to succesfully present this type of 'big picture' analysis of nearly three centuries of history but Andrien's book is intellectually stimulating while being both concise and readable."

4.0 out of 5 stars a must! 16 Jun 2004
By mitzigg04 - Published on Amazon.com
This book let me say has it all! A really great and easy to read history-type book on the incan civilization and colonial society in the Andes. It's very well written and includes so many interesting and no so obvious details. It's easy to understand and a fast read. The only complaint I have is that it's a bit repetitive throughout the chapters, but for students, that's not a bad thing!
