Book Description:

"Bauer's annotated translation of the account provided by Titu Cusi (1538-1570) to defend his claim to royal Inca descent and to justify his opposition to the Spanish invaders makes available for the first time in English a full-length and highly accessible version of this important document. The account will help students and teachers of Latin American history and historians in general better understand the complex and incomplete process of the Spanish Conquest in Peru. Titu Cusi's text and Bauer's ample introduction confront readers with the significant divisions, competing factions, and surprising alliances that appeared among both Inca nobles and Spanish invaders as they battled for power and wealth in the Andes."
