“This splendid work of synthesis, written by a major scholar, examines the ongoing struggles in the Indies among groups of Spaniards (both creoles and peninsulars) to claim political or clerical offices for services rendered to the crown. It is thoughtful, well written work that will prove an invaluable classroom text.” - Kenneth J. Andrien, Southern Methodist University
“A well written and welcome discussion of the changing policies of the Spanish Crown, policies that caused widespread animosity between the native-born and those who migrated from Spain, and ultimately led to Independence movements throughout the colonies.” - Susan M. Socolow, Emory University
“Mark Burkholder provides a unique and revisionist lens: a gendered history that focuses on those processes of conflict and accommodation that shaped relations between Spaniards (peninsulars) and creoles in the Americas over the sweep of three centuries.” - Ann Twinam, University of Texas at Austin
