9780804754958: The Guarani Under Spanish Rule in the Rio De La Plata

This ethnographic study is a revisionist view of the most significant and widely known mission system in Latin America―that of the Jesuit missions to the Guaraní Indians, who inhabited the border regions of Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil. It traces in detail the process of Indian adaptation to Spanish colonialism from the sixteenth through the early nineteenth centuries. The book demonstrates conclusively that the Guaraní were as instrumental in determining their destinies as were the Catholic Church and Spanish bureaucrats. They were neither passive victims of Spanish colonialism nor innocent “children” of the jungle, but important actors who shaped fundamentally the history of the Río de la Plata region. The Guaraní responded to European contact according to the dynamics of their own culture, their individual interests and experiences, and the changing political, economic, and social realities of the late Bourbon period.

From the Back Cover:

“This book, which may well supersede most of its predecessors, is a must for those who care about the subject, and will interest many who know nothing about it.”—D.B. Heath, Brown University
“Barbara Ganson is the first historian to understand the mission Guaraní of Paraguay...This important work sets a high standard. On these famous missions, Ganson is now the best authority.”—The Catholic Historical Review
