Conquered conquistadors : the Lienzo de Quauhquechollan : a Nahua vision of the conquest of Guatemala by Florine G. L Asselbergs( )

29 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Conquered Conquistadors, Florine Asselbergs reveals that a large pictorial map, the Lienzo de Quauhquechollan, long thought to represent a series of battles in central Mexico, was actually painted in the 1530s by Quauhquecholteca warriors to document their invasion of Guatemala alongside the Spanish and to proclaim themselves as conquistadors. This painting is the oldest known map of Guatemala and a rare document of the experiences of indigenous conquistadors." "Conquered Conquistadors, published in a European edition in 2004, overturned conventional views of the European conquest of indigenous cultures. American historians and anthropologists will relish this new edition and Asselbergs's astute analysis, which includes context, interpretation, and comparison with other pictographic accounts of the "Spanish" conquest. This heavily illustrated edition includes an insert reproduction of the Lienzo de Quauhquechollan."--Jacket
Invading Guatemala : Spanish, Nahua, and Maya accounts of the conquest wars by Matthew Restall( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After invading highland Guatemala in 1524, Spaniards claimed to have smashed the Kaqchikel and K'iche' Maya kingdoms and to have forged a new colony with their leader, Pedro de Alvarado, as Guatemala's conquistador, This volume shows that the real story of the Spanish invasion was very different. Designed to be both an accessible introduction to the topic as well as a significant contribution to conquest scholarship, the volume presents for the first time English translations of firsthand accounts by Spaniards, Nahuas, and Mayas." "Alvarado's letters to Cortes, published herein English for the first time in almost a century, are supplemented with accounts by one of his cousins, by his brother Jorge, and by Bernal Diaz and Bartolome de Las Casas. Nahua perspectives are presented in the form of pictorial evidence, along with written testimony by Tlaxcalan and Aztec veterans who fought as invading allies of the Spaniards; their claim to have done most of the fighting emerges as a powerful argument. The views of the invaded are represented by Kaqchikel and Tz'utujil accounts. Together, these sources reveal a multiplicity of perspectives and show how the conquest wars of the 1520s were a profoundly brutal moment in the history of the Americas."--Jacket
