This second edition of Peru s Indian Peoples and the Challenge of Spanish Conquest includes Stern s 1992 reflections on the ten years of historical interpretation that have passed since the book s original publication setting his analysis of Huamanga in a larger perspective.


This book is a monument to both scholarship and comprehension, comparable in its treatment of the indigenous peoples after the conquest only to that of Charles Gibson for the Aztecs, and perhaps the best volume read by this reviewer in several years. Frederick P. Bowser, American Historical Review


Peru s Indian Peoples and the Challenge of Spanish Conquest is clearly indispensable reading for Andeanists and highly recommended to ethnohistorians generally. In technical respects it is a job done right, and conceptually it stands out as a handsome example of anthropology and history woven into one tight fabric of inquiry. Frank Salomon, Ethnohistory
