The Guarani Under Spanish Rule in the Rio De La Plata

Full Product Description

This ethnographic study is a revisionist view of the most significant and widely known mission system in Latin America - that of the Jesuit missions to the Guarani Indians, who inhabited the border regions of Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil. It traces in detail the process of Indian adaptation to Spanish colonialism from the sixteenth through the early nineteenth centuries. The book demonstrates conclusively that the Guarani were as instrumental in determining their destinies as were the Catholic Church and Spanish bureaucrats. They were neither passive victims of Spanish colonialism nor innocent "children" of the jungle, but important actors who shaped fundamentally the history of the Rio de la Plata region.

The Guarani Under Spanish Rule in the Rio De La Plata by Barbara Ganson was published by Stanford University Press in November 2005. The ISBN for The Guarani Under Spanish Rule in the Rio De La Plata is 9780804754958.
