[ send me this essay ]
A 6 page overview of Miguel Leon Portilla's "The Broken Spears : The Aztec Account of the
Conquest of Mexico". Reveals that this book differs from typical accounts of the conquest of
Mexico in that it is one of the few accounts which is presented from the aspect of the indigenous
peoples who lived there rather than from the perspective of the European marauders who
invaded their lands and killed their peoples. Examines the question of why the Spanish were able
to conquer the Aztec. Suggests that this accomplishment is not just due to technological
superiority but also to Spanish mindset. The Spanish conquered the Aztec by destroying their
culture and exposing them to the ravages of disease. No additional sources are listed.
