Es un libro de historia muy del renacimiento, y casi es por eso que es tan interesante. Casi nada delata los sentimientos de una edad como su manera de escribir la historia. El libro es interesante, no tanto por los datos históricos en sí como por el conjunto de suposiciones españoles e incas que se encuentra en su autor. Es fácil olvidar que, aunque los incas fueron conquistados por los españoles, ellos también eran conquistadores de un imperio vasto, y, por eso, su manera de entender la conqui ...more

It would be hard not to recommend this book. Some people might call it a history and others a "historiography." It's not clear how or why one should separate the two. It is one of few documents that tells the story of the Incas according to one of their immediate descendants in the years immediately following their conquest by the Spanish. Garcilaso de la Vega gives colorful and detailed descriptions of their culture and cosmological views and the spread of their society Northward and Southward ...more

This book has literary and historical significance but honestly I loved it for an entirely different reason. I can see him now, writing this book decades later, frustrated with how his experience and history and people have been misremembered and slandered, trying to make peace with never having returned, taking on his father's name so he can feel like a soldier fighting for something. It's a human history, and I like it.

This book provides some terrific insights from an original source for anyone looking to enhance understandings of the Inca and their Conquest. A terrific complement to McQuarries' Last Days of the Incas and Hemmings' Conquest of the Incas.

Volume II is nowhere to be found and it's the one I particularly love --would have given it five stars...

Although not all scholars agree, many consider Garcilaso's accounts the most complete and accurate avai ...more
