Synopsis: This social history of one remote corner of Spain's colonial American empire uses marriage as a window into intimate social relations, examining the Spanish conquest of America and its impact on a group of indigenous peoples, the Pueblo Indians, seen in large part from their point of view.

Review: 'A hypnotizing study of the encounter between Indians and Europeans in New Mexico and of the formation of a colonial society, When Jesus Came is not 'lite' history. It is as theoretically sophisticated and as thoroughly researched as academic history gets. Gutierrez's work is proof that historians can have it both ways, meeting scholarly standards while also offering stories and ideas to capture the interests of a wider audience.'Patricia Nelson Limerick, The New York Times Book Review

Book Description Stanford University Press, Stanford, CA, 1991. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. xxxi+424 pages with tables, figures, bibliography and index. Royal octavo (9 1/4" x 6 1/4") bound in purple cloth with gilt lettering to spine. First edition. For nearly 500 years, the history of the Spanish conquest of America's Indians has been written from the victor's point of view. Historians generally have been content to leave in blindness those "savages" the conquistadors said lived in the darkness of idolatry. This book give vision to the blind and voice to the mute ad silent. It reminds us that the conquest of America was a dialogue between cultures. This is a social history of Spain's colonial American empire, New Mexico, between 1500 and 1846. Using Marriage as a window into intimate social relations, the author examines the Spanish conquest of American and its impact on a group of indigenous peoples, the Pueblo Indians, seen in large part from their point of view. Marriage reflects the social, political and economic arrangements of a society. When people marry they create social alliances, establish a new social unit, change residence, exchange property, and gain rights to sexual service. Marriage is also about gender and power - a representation of relations of domination and subordination in other realms. By carefully interrelating the documentary evidence of courtship, marriage, and sexuality with gender and power theory and the conquerors' record of religious and social reform, the book yields a theoretically fruitful pattern of sociopolitical implications, and of relations between the sexes and between the races. It is also a history of the complex web of interactions between men and women, young and old, rich and poor, slave and free, Spaniard and Indian, all of whom fundamentally depend on the other for their own self-determination. Integrating knowledge and methods from several disciplines, the book offers important new contributions of interpretation (the rhetoric and imagery of Spanish American Catholicism the relationship between honor and social ranking, the nature of racial hierarchies) and of emprical fact (marriage and inheritance patterns, generational obligations, sources of conflict, and poignant stories of ordinary people). Condition: Some yellow marks-a-lot to some of the pages else a very good copy. Bookseller Inventory # CA0110
