Originally published in 1847, HISTORY OF THE CONQUEST OF PERU, a companion volume to William H. Prescott`s masterly HISTORY OF THE CONQUEST OF MEXICO, continues his vivid chronicle of Spanish exploits in the New World. The book`s commanding vision of Pizarro`s tumultuous overthrow of the Inca empire has secured its reputation as a classic in the literature of Latin American history: "HISTORY OF THE CONQUEST OF PERU represents an author`s triumph over his materials," observed Donald G. Darnell, one of the historian`s several biographers. "Prescott exploits to the fullest any opportunities for dramatic effects that history might provide him. . . . If there is one [distinguishing] feature of the Conquest of Peru . . . it is the portrayal of the Spanish character, that striking fusion of courage, cruelty, pride, and gallows humor. . . . We seem to be overhearing dialogue and observing firsthand the interaction between the Spaniards as they struggle for control of an empire. . . . Although Peru lacks a noble protagonist . . . it is still an immensely readable history." Originally published in two volumes in 1847.
