What was the specific function of knowledge in early modern colonial Spain? Brendecke analyzes the connections between empiricism and power in the era of the Spanish Habsburgs and reveals the importance of knowledge in the process of nation-building. In a unique way, he succeeds in producing a political history that synthesizes approaches native to ideological, scientific, and communications history.
