Between Resistance and Adaptation explores the Spanish colonization of the Choc??, a lowland region of present-day Colombia that was crucial to Spanish interests in Latin America because of its large gold deposits. Controlling the gold required the Spanish to subdue the native population of the Choc??; the author considers the strategies used by the colonizers, as well as the subtle, pragmatic responses of indigenous peoples. This book will interest anyone studying the colonial history of Latin America and the struggle of indigenous peoples against colonial powers.
