Michael Wood:
Conquistadors - Paperback

2010, ISBN: 1846079721

[SR: 195141], Paperback, [EAN: 9781846079726], BBC Books, BBC Books, Book, [PU: BBC Books], 2010-03-04, BBC Books, Follows in the footsteps of some of the greatest of the Spanish adventurers travelling from the forests of Amazonia to Lake Titicaca, the deserts of North Mexico, the snowpeaks of the Andes and the heights of Machu Picchu. This work explores the turbulent and terrifying events surrounding the Spanish conquest of the Aztec and Inca empires., Could a 16th-century army of 160 Spaniards subjugate a Native American empire of 5-10 million people? Conquistadors, recounting "tales of heroism and endurance, but also of immeasurable greed and staggering brutality", explains how the "lure of gold", the attributes of individual leaders and the hand of fate made this possible.The book tells of alien cultures meeting for the first time; of Cortes conquering Mexico, Francisco Pizarro's clash with the Incas, the search for El Dorado, and Cabeza de Vaca's years spent peacefully amongst Native Americans. Tying in with a BBC television series in which Michael Wood follows in the footsteps of these explorers, this copiously illustrated and attractively presented book incorporates glimpses of his own journeys. A thought-provoking, balanced and not excessively gory account, Conquistadors reveals how Europeans got bank vaults of gold, potatoes on their dinner tables and lupins in their gardens, while the Native Americans suffered "devastating cultural loss" and gained ravaging diseases. Feeling that "blame or regret are pointless", Wood's focus is on understanding the events and explaining how the world still lives in the conquest's wake. Debate on the morality of the conquest and on what it means to be human occurred in the 16th century and questions on the treatment of traditional cultures, the exploitation of the natural world and globalisation remain as living legacies of the Conquistadors. --Karen Tiley, 271481, Renaissance, 271480, Europe, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 12447484031, Americas, 882506, Canada, 271447, Caribbean & West Indies, 271469, Central America, 882508, Mexico, 772196, Native Americans, 271606, South America, 271565, United States, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 192414031, Categories, 9469007031, Art & Craft Supplies, 197750031, Calendars, Planners & Personal Organisers, 197749031, Envelopes & Mailing Supplies, 197744031, Furniture & Lighting, 197746031, Office Electronics, 197745031, Office Paper Products, 197743031, Office Supplies, 197748031, Pens, Pencils & Writing Supplies, 197747031, School & Educational Supplies, 192413031, Stationery & Office Supplies
