Los paisanos : Spanish settlers on the northern frontier of New Spain by Oakah L Jones ( Book )
10 editions published between 1979 and 1996 in English and Spanish and held by 1,240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We all know of the Spanish explorers, soldiers, and missionaries who came north from Mexico into the American Southwest and then withdrew, leaving Christianized Indians, Spanish place-names, and sturdy adobe forts and churches. But little has been written about the colonists sent by Spanish authorities to settle the northern frontier of New Spain, to stake Spain's claim and serve as a buffer against encroaching French explorers. "Los paisanos," they were called - simple country people who lived by their own labor, isolated, threatened by hostile Indians, and restricted by law from seeking opportunity elsewhere. They built their homes, worked their fields, and became permanent residents - the forebears of United States citizens - as they developed their own society and culture, much of which survives today. In the preface to this paperback edition, Oakah L. Jones, Jr., updates the text with recent scholarship on the settlers
Guatemala in the Spanish colonial period by Oakah L Jones ( )
8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 839 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This comprehensive narrative history of Guatemala, the cultural and political heart of colonial Central America, focuses on the three centuries from the arrival of the conquistador Pedro de Alvarado in 1524 to the modern nation's declaration of independence in 1821. Distinguished historian Oakah L. Jones, Jr., examines both chronologically and topically the geography and the indigenous people of the region; Spain's conquest and initial colonization from 1524 to about 1540; government and administration under the Habsburgs and the Bourbons; the Roman Catholic Church; Spanish-Indian relations and labor practices; land, towns, and the economy; the colonial society and culture; and the effects of such natural disasters as earthquakes and of Spain's defenses of the colony and Kingdom of Guatemala. The author's research both in primary documents located in Spain, Guatemala, and the United States and in published monographs in Spanish and English makes this general history useful both to scholars and to general readers, who will also value its chronology of major events and glossary of terms. Because Guatemala's role was pivotal within the Kingdom of Guatemala (which included present-day Chiapas, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica), this history is an excellent introduction to the effects of Spanish rule in Central America. Guatemala in the colonial period was a dynamic political entity, and Spain left important, enduring legacies in today's modern republic
