Summary: "This book ranks among the best histories of American borderlands, the always contested countries just beyond established power. Folsom's brilliant study is a masterly integration of anthropological wisdom about the Yaqui into his own original, rich, wonderfully developed historical research. He illustrates the formation of the Yaqui people through centuries of complicated military, social, religious, economic, and political engagement with the Spanish empire, which claimed them but could never dominate them. It is excellent scholarship, a richly significant story, and a deeply impressive read."--John Womack, Harvard University. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_usedgood_030019689X

Über diesen Titel:


This groundbreaking new study examines the history of the Yaqui people and their interactions with the Spanish Empire from first contact through Mexican independence.  The Yaquis and the Empire focuses on three ironies: the Yaquis both resisted and came to value their ties with empire; processes of violence and negotiation were ongoing and intertwined throughout the colonial period; and the empire, though weak in manpower and distant from its bases of military and financial strength, was surprisingly effective in its drive to transform the Mexican northwest.
Using extensive, newly unearthed documentation from archives in Mexico, Spain, the United States, and Italy, Folsom shines brilliant light on the dreams, struggles, and tragedies of all participants in the drama of encounter. This finely wrought portrait of the Yaqui people in colonial times shows in vivid detail how natives, Jesuits, settlers, and government officials together brought a distinctive borderlands society into existence.

Inhaltsangabe: This important new book on the Yaqui people of the north Mexican state of Sonora examines the history of Yaqui-Spanish interactions from first contact in 1533 through Mexican independence in 1821. The Yaquis and the Empire is the first major publication to deal with the colonial history of the Yaqui people in more than thirty years and presents a finely wrought portrait of the colonial experience of the indigenous peoples of Mexico's Yaqui River Valley. In examining native engagement with the forces of the Spanish empire, Raphael Brewster Folsom identifies three ironies that emerged from the dynamic and ambiguous relationship of the Yaquis and their conquerors: the strategic use by the Yaquis of both resistance and collaboration; the intertwined roles of violence and negotiation in the colonial pact; and the surprising ability of the imperial power to remain effective despite its general weakness.
