I have posted a couple of chapters of a book I just purchased in the Files section. For anyone interested in historical ethnography or the issue of castes and slavery in Mexico, it is the seminal work on Mexican black ethnohistory.

The book is a wealth of primary source materials on demographics and the ethnohistory of colonial Mexico.

I have included the two parts with the most numerical data but there are other chapters with excepts from archival documents on the daily life, social mobility, etc. of blacks and other "castas" in Nueva Espana.

From the jacket:

The first edition of this book, only six years after the expansion continent-wide of the indigenist movement born in Mexico, rediscovered our portion of America and that in her veins ran not ony indigenous blook, mixed with the white heritage that came with the European conquistadores, but also that which was imported from a part of Africa.

Arturo,

I have Acrobat and can turn the text so it won't be sideways. Should I
do that? What do you think?
