A monumental achievement of scholarship, this volume on the Nahua Indians of central Mexico (often called Aztecs) constitutes our best understanding of any New World indigenous society in the period following European contact.'Lockhart, the most influential historian of colonial Latin American history of his generation, has written a pioneering social and cultural study...The most important work on colonial Mexican history since Charles Gibson's The Aztecs Under Spanish Rule (1964), Lockhart's study is required reading.' -Choice

Product Description


"This book deserves to be recognized for what it is, as a landmark in the study of the adaptation of the Nahuatl-speaking people, who made up most of the population of Central Mexico, to Spanish rule. But, more than this, it is also a classic study in the history of the cultural encounter of European and non-European."--"New York Review of Books"

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful linguistic approach to history 23 Feb 2007
By Camilo Montenegro - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a must for anyone interested in the processes of change within the central indian communities after the arrival of the Spaniards. Two elements stand out: the author's enthralling prose and his meticulous analysis of linguistic changes and his ability to tie them in to broader cultural/historical changes.
