Dr. John Tutino at the Mexican Cultural Institute
John Tutino’s excellent new book, Making a New World: Founding Capitalism in the Bajío and Spanish North America, is just out from Duke University Press. He will discuss it at the Mexican Cultural Institute in Washington, DC, on September 21 at 6:30. I’ll be there, and Georgetown’s bookstore will sell books.
Dr. Tutino will put Mexico in context as central to world history, and his discussant will be Dr. Brian Owensby, author of Empire of Law and Indian Justice in Colonial Mexico (Stanford University Press, 2008).
