Description:

Drawing on records of 300 trials for sodomy conducted in Spain and Mexico between 1561 and 1699, Garza Carvajal examines the Spanish concept of manhood & how it encouraged the Spanish mission to conquer other peoples, who were characterised as being inferior & prone to 'sin against nature'.
