Excerpt

This essay was a by-product of a year spent in studying the history of colonial Spanish America, during my tenure of a Charles and Julia Henry Fellowship at Harvard. My thanks are due to Professor C. H. Haring for his constant help and advice during that year; to Professor R. B. Merriman, who first introduced me to Sepúlveda; and to Mr Lewis Hanke, who communicated to me his own enthusiasm for the Spanish writers on the question of empire, and much valuable information about them. I am indebted to Mr Hanke for many of the bibliographical references in this essay, and, more recently, for his kindness in revising and criticising the manuscript before publication.
