Originally published in Mexico as "Gobierno y Sociedad en Nueva Espana," Ethelia Ruiz Medrano's seminal study "Reshaping New Spain" is now available in an updated English edition. Drawing on extensive archival research, Ruiz examines the developing colonial institutions in Mexico and how they changed indigenous land ownership and labor laws to favor the new bureaucrats. This portrait of the emerging government in New Spain fills a critical niche in Latin American studies.
