Seven Myths Of The Spanish Conquest

Here is an intriguing exploration of the ways in which the history of the Spanish Conquest has been misread and passed down to become popular knowledge of these events. The book offers a fresh account of the activities of the best-known conquistadors and explorers, including Columbus, Cortés, and Pizarro. Using a wide array of sources, historian Matthew Restall highlights seven key myths, uncovering the source of the inaccuracies and exploding the fallacies and misconceptions behind each myth. This vividly written and authoritative book shows, for instance, that native Americans did not take the conquistadors for gods and that small numbers of vastly outnumbered Spaniards did not bring down great empires with stunning rapidity. We discover that Columbus was correctly seen in his lifetime--and for decades after--as a briefly fortunate but unexceptional participant in efforts involving many southern Europeans. It was only much later that Columbus was portrayed as a great man who fought against the ignorance of his age to discover the new world. Another popular misconception--that the Conquistadors worked alone--is shattered by the revelation that vast numbers of black and native allies joined them in a conflict that pitted native Americans against each other. This and other factors, not the supposed superiority of the Spaniards, made conquests possible. The Conquest, Restall shows, was more complex--and more fascinating--than conventional histories have portrayed it. Seven Myths of the Spanish Conquest offers a richer and more nuanced account of a key event in the history of the Americas.

"Can time pass in paintings? How can painters show movement in still, unchanging images? While a story normally takes time to tell, pictures offer their narrative all at once - they have no beginning, middle or end. How then can a still and silent picture tell a story that unfolds over time? Exploring these and other questions, Alexander Sturgis investigates the intriguing relationship between painting and time." "Hogarth's paintings of Before and After tell a simple (if somewhat scurrilous) story by using sequential images to show time's progress - a technique whose use can be traced from the earliest manuscript to the modern comic strip. In contrast Rembrandt's Belshazzar's Feast encapsulates a whole tale in one moment of fear and realisation. Drawing on works by artists as varied as Herge and Uccello, the author begins by considering the different ways in which unmoving images can evoke the progressions of an unfolding story. He then looks at how conveying the impression of rapid movement and the fleeting moment has challenged artists from the earliest times. It was not, for example, until the seventeenth century that spinning wheels were painted blurred: before then artists carefully delineated each spoke of a wheel. He also explores, through the work of artists such as Edgar Degas, Edvard Munch and the Italian Futurist Gino Severini, the far-reaching impact of early photography on painters' depiction of movement." "No two people see exactly the same picture, and looking at paintings, in itself, takes time. The book's final chapter is devoted to showing how people actually see images: how our eyes take in the information a painting presents." "Telling Time is an accessible introduction to a theme that has challenged artists for centuries." --Book Jacket.
