In 1569 the Spanish viceroy Francisco de Toledo ordered the native people of the central Andes to move to newly founded Spanish-style towns calledreducciones. This campaign, known as the General Resettlement of Indians, represented a turning-point in the history of European colonialism: a state forcing an entire conquered society to change its way of life overnight. But while this radical restructuring destroyed certain aspects of indigenous society, Jeremy Ravi Mumford’sVertical Empirereveals the ways that it preserved others. The campaign drew on colonial ethnographic inquiries into indigenous culture and strengthened the place of native lords in colonial society. In the end, the General Resettlement added another layer to a complex web of settlement—a web that Spaniards glimpsed and that Andeans defended fiercely—rather than displacing or destroying it.
