Available in English for the 1st time, An Inca Account of the Conquest of Peru is a firsthand account of the Spanish invasion, narrated in 1570 through Diego de Castro Titu Cusi Yupanqui - the penultimate ruler of the Inca dynasty - to a Spanish missionary and transcribed by way of a mestizo assistant. The ensuing hybrid record bargains an Inca viewpoint at the Spanish conquest of Peru, filtered throughout the monk and his scribe.

Titu Cusi tells of his father's maltreatment by the hands of the conquerors; his father's resulting army campaigns, withdrawal, and homicide; and his personal succession as ruler. even if he endured to withstand Spanish makes an attempt at "pacification," Titu Cusi entertained Spanish missionaries, switched over to Christianity, after which, most significantly, narrated his tale of the conquest to enlighten Emperor Phillip II in regards to the habit of the emperor's matters in Peru. This bright narrative illuminates the Incan view of the Spanish invaders and gives a massive account of indigenous resistance, lodging, swap, and survival within the face of the ecu conquest.

Informed by means of literary, ancient, and anthropological scholarship, Bauer's advent issues out the hybrid parts of Titu Cusi's account, revealing the way it merges local Andean and Spanish rhetorical and cultural practices. Supported partly by way of the Colorado Endowment for the Humanities.
