Whilst much scholarly work has been focused on Spain's South American colonies, less is known about Spanish colonisation of the Pacific. This book fills an important gap in our knowledge, directing attention both to Spain's wider imperial ambitions, and the specific situation within the Philippines. By structuring the book around the life of Hernando de los R os Coronel, many overlapping and complex threads are drawn out, casting light upon a diverse range of subjects."
