Description

The Spanish Empire in America brings together, within a single volume, most of what is known of the institutional history of the Spanish colonies in America, from the Discovery in 1492 to the Wars of Independence in the early nineteenth century.  In this thorough account C. H. Harding, author of South America Looks at the United States and South American Progress, reveals the evolutionary process by which the transfer of Spanish modes of government and society from the Old World to the New created a system unique to the remote and dramatically different American environment.
