This volume, which appeared simultaneously in the United States and Peru, in English and Spanish, collects the essays presented by leading scholars at an interdisciplinary symposium, sponsored by CUNY’s City College and The Graduate Center, inaugurating the celebration of the fourth centennial of the 1605 publication in Lisbon of La Florida del Inca. In this chronicle Garcilaso de la Vega, the son of an Inca princess and a Spanish conquistador, offers the history of Hernando de Soto’s journey (1539–43) into a vast territory then known as La Florida. The book includes ten essays, an introduction, a chronology, a general bibliography, and 55 illustrations. Raquel Chang-Rodríguez is a distinguished professor of Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Languages at City College and The Graduate Center.
