Editorial Reviews

?This study, based on extensive archival research, consists of a collective analysis of the career patterns of 159 men named to the Council for the first time between 1717 and 1808, followed by individual biographical sketches, appendixes, a glossary, and an index. Like his previous study Biographical Dictionary of Audiencia Ministers in the Americas, Burkholder's new work greatly advances our knowledge of the institution and personalities of Spain's most important New World administrative body.
