Colón, Cortés, Pizarro ... were glorified as heroic adventurers who evangelized and built an empire like never before. Today they are condemned for their desire for wealth and for massacring the Aztecs and the Incas. Drawing on hitherto unexplored primary sources, such as diaries, letters, chronicles, and controversial treatises, Fernando Cervantes rethinks the history of the Spanish conquest of the New World, within the political and intellectual context from which its main actors emerged.
