Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala, an indigenous Peruvian serving in the colonial Spanish government, wrote his First New Chronicle and Book of Good Government between the years 1600 and 1616. In this monumental work he recorded the history of Peru from the beginning of time up to the Spanish conquest (1532-1572); he also portrayed pre-colonial Inca society in remarkably vivid detail and proposed his own remedies to the abuses of the corrupt Spanish administration.
