about

Captain General Bustamante, governor of the Spanish colony of Guatemala 1811-1818, is stereotyped as a tyrannical arch-villain of colonial oppression. Timothy Hawkins examines his administration in the context of the effort by colonial officials and partisans to maintain the integrity of the Spanish empire in spite of internal and external unrest.
Timothy P. Hawkins is Professor of History at Indiana State University and has written articles for the Colonial Latin American Historical Review, The Historian, and the Encyclopedia of Latin American History and Culture.

Editorial Reviews

"Bustamante’s tenure in office is especially significant because he advocated many of the Spanish Enlightenment themes, he was a senior naval commander, and he had served as Alejandro Malaspina’s co-planner and commander during the great Spanish scientific maritime expedition and imperial inspection mission of 1789-1794."--Christon I. Archer, author of The Army in Bourbon Mexico, 1760-1810
