Abstract: This book covers a broad range of topics treating Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin American women. Passages address each of the provinces of Spain, Portugal, and the Spanish Americas, offering a brief history concerning the manner in which the Spaniards colonized Latin American lands. The work constructs a framework for understanding the impact of Spanish history on the colonies and specifically on indigenous women. Furthermore, the writers of these accounts seem especially preoccupied with capturing the regional qualities that distinguish these women. Some writers even provide poetic excerpts to bring to life the illustrations contained in this volume.
Description: Printed document, 301pp. Madrid. A survey of women in Latin America, illustrated with 21 chromolithographic plates mounted on separate sheets with printed borders and titles.
