really liked it
Read in August, 2009

Makes a good case that it was an empire. clear explication, sourced, for economics, politics, diplomacy, a little on the religion, population, technology. stunning how they devastated northern mexico for decades, how New Mexico bought peace, how white and native american trading groups prospered or didn't based on the commanche trade. gives me some more insight into how other horse and war technology empires rose and fell, like various larger asian migratory type empires such as the khazars, various turkish and mongol, etc.
