Description

Second volume of Hugh Thomas’ series on the rise of the Spanish Empire in America. The Golden Empire is the chronicle of the initial years of Spanish hegemony over the Caribbean and Mexico, the conquest of the Incan Empire, the exploration of North America led by Hernando de Soto, and the Catholic Counter-Reformation. Moreover, Hugh Thomas makes an effort to unveail the personality of Charles V of Spain. This in-depth survey includes the theological debate between Las Casas and Sepúlveda to determine if the Indians had soul (yeah, for real, but it was an important precedent to the human rights debate).
