Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this updated edition of the classic THE BROKEN SPEARS, Leon-Portilla has included accounts from native Aztec descendants across the centuries. Those texts bear witness to the extraordinary vitality of an oral tradition that preserves the viewpoints of the vanquished instead of the victors.

Book News Annotation:

**** Cited in BCL3, this work was originally published in Spanish as Vision de los vencidos (1959) and appeared in English in 1962. This is an expanded and updated edition which includes accounts from Aztec descendants as well as the voices of those who actually experienced the Spanish conquest.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 183-187) and index.
