"Nueva España y el Pacífico Hispánico" brings together works promoted by the academic figure of Carmen Yuste, who has dedicated more than forty years to research on trade, transpacific connections and the Manila Galleon, as well as teaching about the 18th century novohispano.
In the work she reflects on issues related to her main lines of work, around three major themes: trade and the networks that were established between the Philippines and New Spain; the territorial incursions and trade negotiations that took place in the trans-Pacific area, in which the territories directly facing that ocean were involved; and the attempts and scope of reforms in the colonial sphere, from the Iberian Peninsula, to New Spain and the Philippines.
With the book we intend to pay a well-deserved tribute to the long academic career of the researcher, who, over the years, has opened new lines and perspectives of research, and to a work that has been distinguished for its originality and its pioneering nature in global history and the social history of trade.
