Michael O'Mara Books has established a reputation for high-profile autobiographies and biographies, innovative humor and nonfiction, and highly commercial children's books.
"Susan Schroeder's edited work balances the history of the Spanish conquest of Mexico by presenting an indigenous voice from the past and, at the same time, reawakens a historiographical debate about the extremes of the Spanish Black Legend stereotypes that reached its high point in academia in the 1960s. ...The authors of the essays in this volume have effectively used such sources in presenting the views of the conquered through the works of Nahua and Zapotec record keepers. This book is highly recommended to those who wish to gain a much needed perspective of the European conquest of the Americas." --"Colonial Latin American Historical Review "
