The Spanish empire from the 16th to the 18th century was the first space where the conditions for what we know today as a global world arose. The unification of the language and trade routes led to the exchange of people, ideas and products from the four continents.
In this book, Dr. Rubial presents fourteen biographies of historical figures, including Isabel Moctezuma, China Poblana, and Jacinto Kan-ek. People who crossed the borders of their places of origin and their own cultures and who at some point in their lives were in New Spain, a key point where the paths of the world crossed. Entertaining, easy to read accompanied by maps and infographics, it is a book that reflects the importance of New Spain in a global world for four centuries.
