Reviews

Review:

"[T]his book deserves to become a classic because it is not only the best book on colonial Yucatan but also one of the best ever on Mesoamerica…. Its strongest point is that it is sheer scholarship, well conceived, researched, and written by one whose intellectual vision transcends the narrowing and arbitrary boundaries that separate the various academic disciplines in the social sciences and humanities."--Joseph A. Whitecotton, American Historical Review

"[A] remarkably comprehensive, impressive piece of work which opens a new era in our approach to the history of Indian society under Spanish rule."--David Brading, Times Literary Supplement
