Critique: 'This collection of essays opens new perspectives and gives insight not only into the specificity of Florida but also the early modern transatlantic world, which reflects the cultural exchanges of our global era...For this informative richness, this collection of essays is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the history and culture of the Americas.' -- Kim Beauchesne, The University of British Columbia Chasqui: Revista de Literature Latinoamericana 'Garcilaso de la Vega's La Florida del Inca is now getting the attention it deserves [...] La Florida del Inca, edited by Raquel Chang-Rodriguez, is a collection of eleven essays that unravels the historical, intellectual, and publicationbackground of Garcilaso's chronicle. The result is a vital resource for the general reader and the specialist [...] For those in the field of colonial studies, Beyond Books and Borders will prove to be indispensable; its interdisciplinary approaches provide solid background as well as stimulating interpretations." -- Luis Millones Figueroa, Colby College The Americas: A Quarterly Review of Latin American History 'The useful introductory materials, together with the abundant illustrations and clearly written essays, make the volume accessible to students and readers unfamiliar with Garcilaso's work, while the novelty of much of its scholarship will appeal to specialists...As a volume simultaneously printed in Spanish in Peru, Beyond Books and Borders has the merit of bringing La Florida del Inca to the attention of a wider public in both American continents - a fitting tribute to a work that moves 'beyond borders' to bridge these two continents as well as the Atlantic.' -- Lisa Voigt, The University of Chicago Revista de Estudios Hispanicos 'Garcilaso de la Vega's La Florida del Inca is now getting the attention it deserves [...] La Florida del Inca, edited by Raquel Chang-Rodriguez, is a collection of eleven essays that unravels the historical, intellectual, and publication background of Garcilaso's chronicle.
