WORLD UPSIDE DOWN,THE

Based on many types of early historical accounts, local documents and archaeological and anthropological findings, this book describes how the Spanish colonial system altered the organisation and belief systems of the native inhabitants of northern Peru during the first fifty years or so after the Spanish conquest. It explores the impact of expanding colonialism on indigenous ideas about leadership and legitimacy, the supernatural and morality, land tenure, service and allegiance and wealth.
