Bartolome de Las Casas was the first and fiercest critic of Spanish colonialism in the New World. An early traveller to the Americas who sailed on one of Columbus's voyages, Las Casas was so horrified by the wholesale massacre he witnessed that he dedicated his life to protecting the Indian community. He wrote A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies in 1542, a shocking catalogue of mass slaughter, torture and slavery, which showed that the evangelizing vision of Columbus had descended under later conquistadors into genocide. Dedicated to Philip II to alert the Castilian Crown to these atrocities and demand that the Indians be entitled to the basic rights of humankind, this passionate work of documentary vividness outraged Europe and contributed to the idea of the Spanish 'Black Legend' that would last for centuries.… (mere)

Heritage Studies Book 7

Conquistador-turned-friar Bartolome De Las Casas wrote this account detailing the atrocities that the Spanish were subjecting onto the indigenous peoples. He wrote this to shed light onto the horrors and not only to inform the public but hoped that Charles V, the king of Spain at the time, would enact laws preventing further destruction and chaos in the Caribbean and Latin America.

I have read books on Christopher Columbus and the colonization of the Americas and this book almost always is used as a primary source. One historian who’s book I read about the Columbus voyages brought up a good point when speaking of Las Casas’ work: since this was written in the hopes of persuading the Spanish Crown, exaggeration and embellishment is an unfortunate possibility. Any work that is 500 years old also suffers from mistranslation and the skewing of information.

However, I feel that doesn’t take away from the overall work. It is no secret that the Spanish did terrible things to the Amerindians. Disease was certainly a major factor in wiping out large swaths of the population, but the conquistadors didn’t stand by idly. Guns and steel were used without discrimination. Las Casas may have ballooned the figures of those killed, but the methods he describes may have certainly been used.

Overall, this is an important piece of literature concerning the bloody colonization of Latin America. The crashing of the “Old World” and “New World” was a destructive collision and a story of violent upheaval as evidenced in this gruesomely descriptive work. At the same time, because of this tumultuous meeting of two worlds we now have today a wonderful vibrant mix of cultures. ( )
