Summary
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
