The History of the Incas may be the best description of Inca life and mythology to survive Spanish colonization of Peru. Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa, a well-educated sea captain and cosmographer of the viceroyalty, wrote the document in Cuzco, the capital of the Inca Empire, just forty years after the arrival of the first Spaniards. The royal sponsorship of the work guaranteed Sarmiento direct access to the highest Spanish officials in Cuzco. It allowed him to summon influential Incas, especially those who had witnessed the fall of the Empire. Sarmiento also traveled widely and interviewed numerous local lords (curacas), as well as surviving members of the royal Inca families. Once completed, in an unprecedented effort to establish the authenticity of the work, Sarmiento's manuscript was read, chapter by chapter, to forty-two indigenous authorities for commentary and correction.

The scholars behind this new edition (the first to be published in English since 1907) went to similarly great lengths in pursuit of accuracy. Translators Brian Bauer and Vania Smith used an early transcript and, in some instances, the original document to create the text. Bauer and Jean-Jacques Decoster's introduction lays bare the biases Sarmiento incorporated into his writing. It also theorizes what sources, in addition to his extensive interviews, Sarmiento relied upon to produce his history. Finally, more than sixty new illustrations enliven this historically invaluable document of life in the ancient Andes.

The radicalization of Latin American thought is oriented towards a counter-hegemonic proposal to the model applied in the region, and contrary to the idea of presently keeping those criteria defended by the Economic Commission for Latin America (CEPAL) since 1990 –regarding productive transformation with equity, an idea which it has kept, though with some adjustments, for almost two decades–; seemingly nonviable in.

In April 2016, my wife and I went to Peru to visit Machu Picchu. We were immersed in the Peruvian culture for a week and love Peru and the people there. After we returned, I ordered this to delve even more deeply in the culture by studying the Incas. This is a great book for learning about the history of the Incas.
Wrathshaper
Very interesting commentary and facts about the Incas. Collectively a history from word of mouth of the living descendants of the royal Incas. Commissioned for the king of Spain in 1572, unique it is. Worthy of the searcher for knowledge.
Nejind
Remarkably detailed description slanted by the voice of the conqueror. Lots of genealogies and plenty of moralizing. If you can find your way through this, you will probably have the most complete picture of the Incas and their lives that exists, even today. Very bloody history presented in excruciating detail.
SiIеnt
Lots of good info on the history. Dated in its presentation. If you are a historian you have probably already read this and loved it, but for us casual curious, it's definitely not a "can't put down" book. I still would recommend it, though, for all those interested in Peru and the Incas.
Quphagie
Difficult reading and incredibly repetitious but does offer some insight into the history of the Incas..
Goll
only about lineage and wars and murder, not enough about the rest of their culture.
Whitebeard
good read
Very interesting story about ancient generations like Incas, the ancestors before Mexicans come into the Mexico country as a their native land. It's real stories, and sounds like fairy tailes as from James Fenimore Cooper from Deerslayer or Spy, or Last of the Mohicans. Great book.
