A good book that attempts to give the Aztec side of the Cortez invasion and conquest of Mexico. It is a compilation of the extant codices and other writings of the Aztec writers and relations to Salghuin's Florentine Codex as well as others. Very interesting. Where usually history is written by the winners this one relates the story by the looser.
A very excellent book on the conquest of Mexico by Cortes. Gives the views of the loosing side. The sources are various records and codexes by writers at the time and usually in Nahuatl. The part I find interesting is that while Cortes's records and reports always talk of Christianity and the purpose being to convert the people to Christ. These records show almost none of this and Christ is a. a foreigner and b. their gods in anew face at best. Very Very interesting.
