Explores the confrontation of two cultures, European and Amerindian, and two empires, Spanish and Aztec. In an age of exploration and conquest, Spanish soldiers, missionaries, and merchants brought an array of cultural preconceptions. Ten eminent historians and archaeologists examine analogies between empires widely separated in time and place.

John M. D. Pohl has directed numerous archaeological projects in North America and in Europe. He teaches in the Department of Art History at the University of California, Los Angeles. Claire L. Lyons is the curator of antiquities at the J. Paul Getty Museum and an adjunct associate professor in the Department of Art History at the University of Southern California.
