    • Pésimo libelo. El autor ni siquiera explica la razón de ser del libro, por ello pasamos las primeras páginas con desconcierto, con la confusión de no saber a dónde quiere llegar. La discusión en la que se inserta el libro, la dialéctica entre América y Europa, parte de una base errónea, ergo el resto es un escribir por escribir.Me veo obligado a mencionar el pésimo método de este historiador, que omite definiciones y distinciones vitales si no queremos sumirnos en la oscuridad y la co [...]


    • A very small book--a hundred pages--it is made up of lectures. I think it suffers, not from a deficiency, but from the passage of time and the knowledge that has grown throughout. What he is saying does not read as new or different but I think that's because so many after him have done the same. In 1970, before the boom in Postcolonial Studies and social and cultural history, perhaps this book did read as something new. It's a nice entry-way into an examination of how and why a nation was influe [...]


    • An excellent discussion of the impact of the discovery of the New World on Europe. The book is split into four parts and the discussion of the ideological and literary impact of Columbus' discovery was (to me) the most fascinating. An excellent bibliography accompanies this edition for anybody wishing to research further.Highly academic in tone - the text is based on Elliott's lectures - but very relevant and timely in it's content.


    • Buena introducción al impacto intelectual económico y político de América en Europa, desde la incomprensión inicial del s Xvi hasta la integración en la orbita política a mediados del siglo siguiente. interesante, en particular, la discusión de América y el surgimiento del cspitalimso y de la importancia de los metales americanos para la economía y políticas españolas. Bibliografía.



    • short and very readable, but the first chapter is quite weak and it sometimes could do with more interesting/better illustrations of points.
