This first volume retains most of the colonial period sources from the ninth edition but with some significant additions, including new sets of images representing Brazilian cannibals and "casta paintings" of mixed race families, an alternative conquest narrative, and five new readings on imperial governance, gender, and sexuality -including selections from the autobiography of a Spanish nun who took on a male persona to fight as a soldier in the American colonies ... Concise introductions for chapters and excerpts provide essential context for understanding the primary sources."--Descripción del editor
