Children of the Father King: Youth, Authority, & Legal Minority in Colonial Lima

Synopsis

Premo examines the social world of children and youths in Lima, Peru, the capital of the Spanish colonial empire in South America. She argues that there was a disjuncture between patriarchal laws and actual child rearing practices that caused the authority of men and masters to erode, straining the legal link between domestic governance and the Spanish king's colonial legitimacy.
