What People are Saying About This

Mark Burkholder

"The authors successfully develop the economic interaction of Spain, her colonies, and Europe in a book that is an unparalleled example of Spanish imperial history. Their emphasis on the vital role played by American silver is fully convincing. They point out the negative consequences of silver production and the transatlantic trading system on Spanish administrative institutions and economic development in Peru and New Spain, arguing that by the close of the Hapsburg era the institutions were 'involuted,' the economy dependent and immobile."
