The slaves in the Americas usually have only one face: that of the Africans turned into merchandise, kidnapped from their homes and brutally forced to work in the New World. But to that atrocious history, "La otra esclavitud. Historia oculta del esclavismo indígena" adds the subjugation that was imposed upon the indigenous peoples of the Americas during the colonial period. Author Andrés Reséndez won the Bancroft Award from Columbia University for this work in 2017, and was a finalist at the National Book Awards in 2016. The text was translated from its original title in English, "The Other Slavery: The Uncovered Story of Indian Enslavement", by Maia F. Miret and Stella Mastrangelo.
