The fall of the Spanish American empire by Salvador de Madariaga( Book )

44 editions published between 1947 and 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How Spanish Imperial powers in the New World came to an end is the subject of this well-known volume. The eminent historian and diplomat Salvador de Madariaga assays the components of the decline from the point of view of a Spaniard who believes that Spain's role has been misunderstood by many historians. But he is first of all a scholar who presents the evidence on every side. His history is highlighted by colorful touches. He portrays the characteristic Quixotism of the Spanish conquistador, moving between extremes of cruelty and charity, riding into battle in armor draped with bright orange and blue sash. He tells of the Caura River Indians, who gradually gave up their addiction to cannibalism. He describes auto-de-fé and debauchery, as well as the most exalted moments of human courage, and sets all of this against the glittering silver of Potosí, the vivid multiracial backdrop of the New World, and the splendor of the great cultures of the peoples of Spanish America -- Back cover

Guia del lector del "Quijote", ensayo psicológico sobre el "Quijote." by Salvador de Madariaga( Book )

116 editions published between 1926 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un fino análisis psicológico de los personajes de la obra maestra y, como el propio autor indicaba enla presentación, un intento de "dar renuevo de interés a la lectura del Quijote". La delicada gama psicológica que acompaña los caracteres de Don Quijote y Sancho es bien diversa del simplismo con que vulgarmente ha sido apreciado el libro en general. El Quijote y Sancho sintetizan dos modos de ser opuestos, o más bien complementarios. A lo largo del relato se contagian; donde Quijote se sanchfica y Sancho se quijotiza. Ambas figuras se mueven en un delicado y complejo paralelismo. Por eso dice, con razón el aludido crítico: "Sancho es, en cierto modo, una transposición de Don Quijote en clave distinta."

El corazón de piedra verde by Salvador de Madariaga( Book )

195 editions published between 1941 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is a work of historical fiction set in the late pre-Columbian age in Mexico City and depicts the daily life of the ancient Aztec people, both the commoners (servants, traders and warriors) and the upper classes (priests, nobles, and government officials). The "Mexican" section contains a great deal of Mexican symbolism, geographical, political and religious references and historical data took from various authors like Bernal Díaz del Castillo and his book Verdadera Historia de la Conquista de la Nueva España (in English, "True History of the Conquest of New Spain"). The novel also recounts the history and development of the Manriques, a family of Spanish nobles, and details aspects of life in 15th century Spain. The Manrique family lives through major historical events, such as the reconquest of Spain by Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castile, the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492, the reception of Christopher Columbus twice at Torremala (the Family Settlement), news of the discovery of the Americas and the relationship between the family of Hernán Cortés and the Manriques. The two stories eventually merge with the meeting of the two main characters, Alonso Manrique and Xuchitl (the daughter of King Nezahualpilli of Texcoco, one of the three allied kingdoms that Cortés found at the time of his arrival). As Cortés approaches the great city of Tenochtitlan, the Mexican natives line the city's main causeway. Xuchitl is among the gathered crowds, and sees Alonso Manrique there for the first time. The Mexican set of characters struggles with love, pain, pride and hate with the Spanish group of characters during the conquest of Mexico (1519-1521) by Hernán Cortés, the fall and complete destruction of Tenochtitlan and its satellite kingdoms, and the emergence of a new nation, New Spain (now modern Mexico) out of the meeting of two great cultures: the Spanish heritage (with old Visigoth, Jewish, Moorish and Catholic roots) and the ancient native Mexican traditions (like the Olmecs, Mayans, and Toltecs). The novel deals with the "conflict between two worlds": Christian Europe and Aztec America. Both civilizations are represented by equally-committed proponents: Alonso Manrique (Europe) and Itzcauatzin (America). Both characters are soldiers and priests (symbolizing nationalism and faith). Alonso started as a priest and later became a warrior; Itzcauatzin entered an academy (Calmecac) that prepared him for both. Caught in between is Xuchitl, the Aztec princess. Whoever wins her wins the future of the Aztec civilization. Xuchitl identifies the winner by giving him the Aztec talisman known as "el corazon de piedra verde" ("the green stone heart"). This talisman was worn by her father and represents the mystic powers of the Aztec religion. Alonso won, signifying the beginning of the Christianization of Mexico. Itzcauatzin gives his life as a human sacrifice vainly trying to add enough power to the traditional religion to overcome the Europeans. In the end, Alonso and Xuchitl have a son and return to Mexico from Spain. They bring the jade heart with them, but with the Virgin Mary etched on it to counteract the stone's original powers. The novel was the first of an intended five novels -- each covering a century (16th to 20th) -- tracking the creation of modern Mexico through the descendants of Alonso and Xuchitl. However, only four novels were finished before Salvador de Madariaga died
