To the gold hungry Spaniards Hernando Cortes was a brash upstart who had gone off to invade Mexico without sufficient authority. To the devout Aztecs he was a long absent god who had returned to Mexico City to fulfill a legendary promise. Against a composite background of art, science, and scholarship, the heroic figure of Hernando Cortes stands forth with ever greater clarity. It is he who arrogantly battered open the doors of the New World, the model for a new generation of conquistadors who would begin the exploration of this continent with careless courage.
