About the Author

Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, the William P. Reynolds Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame, is the author of Pathfinders: A Global History of Exploration and Our America: A Hispanic History of the United States. He lives in South Bend, Indiana, and London.


"With a lucid, engaging style, [Fernandez-Armesto] seeks to understand the continuity between the Spanish colonization and the fight for justice led by the Chicano movement in the sixties and by immigration advocates today...This is an invitation to look at America in full!" -- Ilan Stavans, general editor of The Norton Anthology of Latino History "In enviably lyrical prose, Felipe Fernandez-Armesto has written a bold and compelling synthesis of our nation's Hispanic past, from the Spanish arrival in the late fifteenth century to the current and contentious debate over immigration reform. Marshaling famous and forgotten individuals and events, he reminds us that there is much more to America's story than simply Massachusetts Pilgrims and Virginia Cavaliers." -- Andrew R. Graybill, director, Clements Center for Southwest Studies, Southern Methodist University "A rich and moving chronicle ... Perhaps the first history to make the case for this nation's becoming a bright Latin American country." -- Julio Ortega - New York Times Book Review "Exceedingly well-written and engaging." -- Hector Tobar - Los Angeles Times "Triumphantly rescues Hispanic America from obscurity." -- The Economist "A valuable contribution to those seeking a broader understanding of U.S. history." -- Janet Napolitano - The Wall Street Journal
