The War for Mexico's West examines a dramatic, complex episode in the early history of New Spain that stands as an instructive counterpoint to the much more familiar, triumphalist narrative of Spanish daring, resilience, and victory embodied in the oft-told tale of the conquest of central Mexico. As Spaniards consolidated their hold over central Mexico they fanned out in several directions, first entering western Mexico--the future New Galicia--in 1524. A full-fledged expedition of conquest followed several years later. Among the loosely organized, ethnically and linguistically diverse societies of New Galicia, however, neither the Spaniards' usual stratagems of conquest nor their attempts to settle and impose their institutions met with much success. An uprising against Spanish rule, today known as the Mixton war, erupted in 1540, attracting thousands of people from many different indigenous communities and bringing Spanish failure in the region into sharp relief. Set within the context of the complex politics of early New Spain in which such prominent figures as Hernando Cortés, Nuño de Guzmán, Pedro de Alvarado, Francisco Vázquez de Coronado, and don Antonio de Mendoza vied to fulfill their ambitions in the west and incorporating accounts and testimony reflecting indigenous perspectives, Altman's treatment of the prolonged conquest of New Galicia provides the first full-length account in English of these little-known events and their consequences for Indians and Spaniards.

Reviews about The War for Mexico's West: Indians and Spaniards in New Galicia, 1524-1550 (Diálogos Series) (4):

My grandparents are from Jalisco, and this book was recommended to me by a genealogist friend of mine as a good source for the history of the Spanish Conquest in West Mexico. It is an excellent scholarly and well- documented history of contact, conquest and colonization of West Mexico by the Spanish. I highly recommend this book. It's also written in English, which is a boon to us Americans of Mexican and Spanish ancestry who don't speak Espanol. Ida Altman is an excellent historian in my book.
