This is an authoritative study of colonialism in the Spanish Empire at the end of the 18th century. It explains how the Spanish metropole attempted to preserve the links to its richest colony in the western Atlantic, New Spain ( Mexico), in the face of international development. The authors detail Spain’s ad hoc efforts to adjust metropolitan and colonial institutions, structures, and ideology to the pressures of increased competition in the Old and New worlds. It explains the broad array of factors that led up to the French invasion of Spain in early 1808.
