Reviews

"This is the best book-length study, to date, of any of the Spanish invasions of the Maya area. Strike Fear in the Land shows how a sensitive reading of both European and Mesoamerican sources can produce a succinct and significant contribution to the New Conquest History."--Matthew Restall, author of When Montezuma Met Cortés: The True Story of the Meeting That Changed History
