VIEWPOINT OF THE DEFEATED. INDIGENOUS RELATIONS OF THE CONQUEST

VISIÓN DE LOS VENCIDOS. RELACIONES INDÍGENAS DE LA CONQUISTA

The publishing of Visión de los vencidos in 1959 was a milestone in the historiographic panorama of Latin America. This emblematic anthology presents for the first time, the testimonies about the Conquest of the Mesoamerican people written on their own hand and translated directly from Nahuatl to Spanish, as well as a profuse sampling of pictographic representations of the ancient codices that depict similar events. More than 50 years after its first edition, this classic work—translated into more than 15 languages—has enlarged the presence of these people in our intellectual landscape and keeps restoring faces and hearts of those who had lost them.

"An erudite scholar of ancient Mexico, León-Portilla leads us with a firm hand along the road of words that were and still are. We should be delighted that this book is as important today as ever and that its importance is still growing." —Eduardo Matos Moctezuma, Archaeologist.

"A great epic poem on the origins of our nationality. A classic book, essential for all Mexicans." —José Emilio Pacheco, writer.
