9780312410216: Christopher Columbus and the Enterprise of the Indies: A Brief History with Documents (The Bedford Series in History and Culture)

In 1492, previously separate worlds collided and began to merge, often painfully, into the world-system in which we live today. Columbus's four Atlantic voyages (1492-1504) helped link Africa, Europe, and the America. These carefully selected documents describe the voyages and their immediate impact on Europe and the indigenous peoples of the Caribbean. Symcox and Sullivan's engaging introduction presents Columbus as neither hero nor villain, but as a significant historical actor who improvised responses to a changed world. Document headnotes provide context for understanding Columbus's voyages within the broader context of Fifteenth-Century Europe and the policies of the Spanish crown.

Review:

'Unlike any other collection of documents that I have come across, the Symcox and Sullivan text gives agency to the players and participants while offering a balanced and full examination of the people and events that changed the world forever.' – Jim Ross-Nazzal, Montgomery College, USA

'The scholarship is impeccable and worn lightly enough to encourage even the most recalcitrant undergraduate. The translations are fluid, easily intelligible while remaining faithful to the originals.' – Anthony Robin Dermer Pagden, University of California, Los Angeles, USA

About the Author:

GEOFFREY SYMCOX is Professor of History, University of California, Los Angeles, USA.
