Enduring Conquests : Rethinking the Archaeology of Resistance to Spanish Colonialism in the Americas Paperback / softback
Part of the School for Advanced Research Advanced Seminar Series series
Paperback / softback
Enduring Conquests presents new interpretations of Native American experiences under Spanish colonialism and challenges the reader to reexamine long-standing assumptions about the Spanish conquests of the Americas.
The contributors to this volume reject the grand narrative that views this era as a clash of civilizations--a narrative produced centuries after the fact--to construct more comprehensive and complex social histories of Native American life after 1492 by employing the perspective of archaeology and focusing explicitly on the native side of the colonial equation.
