Using excerpts primarily drawn from Bernal Diaz's 1632 account of the Spanish victory and from testimonies--many recently uncovered--of indigenous Nahua survivors gathered by Bernardino de Sahagun, Victors and Vanquished clearly demonstrates how personal interests, class and ethnic biases, and political considerations can influence interpretation of events. A substantial introduction is followed by 9 chronological sections that illuminate the major events and personalities in this powerful historical episode and reveal the changing attitudes toward European expansionism.

About the Author:

Stuart B. Schwartz is George Burton Adams Professor of History at Yale University.

Review:

“Schwartz has made readily available to the lay reader much of the specialist work on this period in this highly recommended book.” —History: Reviews of New Books

“[What] emerges from Schwartz’s arrangement of the sources is a fairly nuanced vision of the political situation in central Mexico during this epic clash of cultures.” —The Sixteenth Century Journal
