Cambridge Latin American Studies: Ambivalent Conquests: Maya and Spaniard in Yucatan, 1517-1570

Inga Clendinnen (La Trobe University, Victoria)

This is both a specific study of conversion in a corner of the Spanish Empire, and a work with implications for the understanding of European domination and native resistance throughout the colonial world. Dr Clendinnen explores the intensifying conflict between competing and increasingly divergent Spanish visions of Yucatan and its destructive outcomes. She seeks to penetrate the ways of thinking and feeling of the Mayan Indians in a detailed reconstruction of their assessment of the intruders.
