Michael Wood:

Conquistadors - Taschenbuch

2010, ISBN: 1846079721

[SR: 90970], Paperback, [EAN: 9781846079726], BBC Books, BBC Books, Book, [PU: BBC Books], 2010-03-04, BBC Books, The Spanish conquest of the Americas in the 16th century was one of the most important and cataclysmic events in history. Spanish expeditions endured incredible hardships in order to open up the lands of the 'New World', and few stories in history can match these for drama and endurance. In Conquistadors, Michael Wood 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. He experiences the epic journeys of Cortes, Pizarro, Orellana and Cabeza de Vaca, and explores the turbulent and terrifying events surrounding the Spanish conquest of the Aztec and Inca empires. Wood brings these stories to vivid life, highlighting both the heroic accomplishments and the complex moral legacy of the European invasion. Conquistadors is Michael Wood at his best - thoughtful, provocative and gripping history., 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, 271565, North America, 271566, Colonial, Independence 1501-1800, 271567, Civil War, American Indian Wars, Pioneers 1801-1900, 771766, Early 20th Century 1901-1913, 771768, Inter-war Period 1919-1938, 271570, Post-war Period, 1946-Present, 772168, War Of Independence, 771772, Korean War, 771770, Vietnam War, 771774, Gulf War, 10755401, American Civil War, 882506, Canada, 882508, Mexico, 772196, Native Americans, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271389, Other Historical Subjects, 278066, Discovery & Exploration, 277011, Heraldry, 271564, Historiography, 275757, History of Education, 278290, History of Engineering & Technology, 270830, History of Medicine, 772136, History of Science, 271408, Holocaust, 772066, Slavery, 271436, Theory & Methods, 772142, Witchcraft, 276593, Women in History, 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
