Between 711 and 1492, Christians, Jews, and Muslims lived side by side in medieval Spain and forged a golden age for each faith, making Spain the continent's commercial and cultural center while Europeans elsewhere were mired in the Dark Age. This hour on Here on Earth, Jean Feraca and her guest talk about the wisdom, hope, and lessons that the medieval Spain offers to our modern age troubled by religious strife and division.

Seven Myths of the Spanish Conquest

===> Click to hear "Seven Myths of the Spanish Conquest"

     Matthew Restall was educated at Oxford University and UCLA, and is currently Professor of Latin American History and Director of Latin American Studies at the Pennsylvania State University. His areas of specialization are colonial Yucatan and Mexico, Maya history, the Spanish Conquest, and Africans in Spanish America. Since 1995 he has published over thirty articles and essays and eight books, including The Maya World (Stanford, 1997), Maya Conquistador (Beacon, 1998), and Seven Myths of the Spanish Conquest (Oxford, 2003). He received NEH Fellowships for 1997-98 and 2001-02, and a Guggenheim Fellowship for 2003-04 to write a history of Afro-Yucatecans. His most recent books are an edited volume titled Beyond Black and Red (Albuquerque, 2005), and a co-authored volume, Mesoamerican Voices (Cambridge, 2005).

     Professor Restall's best-known book is Seven Myths of the Spanish Conquest, published by Oxford University Press in 2003 (and in a Spanish edition by Paidós in 2005, titled Los Siete Mitos de la Conquista Española). The book is designed both as a readable introduction to the story of the Spanish conquests in the Americas, and as a revisionist challenge to the conventional wisdom on this watershed period of world history. It was judged one of the ten best history books of 2003 by The Economist. "Seven Myths of the Spanish Conquest" can be ordered through Oxford University Press by: Clicking Here

1491

===> Click to hear "1491"

     According to John Herron's guest this week, Charles C. Mann, the Americas before Columbus were very different from the commonly perceived unpopulated pristine wilderness awaiting Manifest Destiny. He explains that new evidence presented in his book, 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus, suggests that before it became the New World, it was more populated and sophisticated than previously thought. Mann is an award winning author and correspondent for Science and The Atlantic Monthly. Airdate: December 19, 2005.

Birth of San Francisco

I would like to thank Richard Miller of http://sparkletack.com for giving Nuestra Familia Unida permission to link to his podcasts about the "Birth of San Francisco." Read on for his description of his show:

"bite-sized chunks of history and culture from my favourite city, san francisco. from the wild days of the barbary coast to the particularities of modern life--weekly observations and stories from america's left coast."

Birth of San Franisco #1
when i got here, san francisco was already a city -- and had been one for the previous century and a half. but what went on before that time? what was san francisco before it was san francisco? i've decided to tell the story of the pre-city peninsula, and the birth of the tiny town of yerba buena, starting with the arrival of the spanish in the 1770s.

Birth of San Francisco #2
part two of the pre-history of san francisco, the early life of the village of yerba buena. the epic sweep of Mexico's revolution and the annexation of california to the united states for all intents and purposes passed the town by. monterey, sonoma, and the great californio ranchos were where most of the action was, with yerba buena developing slowly and in the background.

in this and next week's shows i will wander through the years between the building of that first sail-cloth shanty on the shores of the bay and the discovery of gold in the sacramento valley. i hope a series of stories and individual sketches will give you a feeling for life in yerba buena during those few years. today's show will take you up to about 1841.

Birth of San Francisco #3
part three of the pre-history of san francisco, the early life of the village of yerba buena. this is the concluding episode on this theme, taking you right up to the edge of 1848. in this episode: goats, bears, mormons!

HistoryPodcast 62 - The Cristero War

Thank you very much to the "History Podcast" for permission to link to "The Cristero War" podcast. Please go to the "History Podcast" website to hear many other podcasts on a wide variety of topics and information on how to subscribe: http://historypodcast.blogspot.com/

The struggle between church and state in Mexico broke out in armed conflict during the Cristero War (also known as the Cristiada) of 1926 to 1929. This was a popular uprising against the anti-clerical provisions of the Mexican Constitution of 1917.

After a period of peaceful resistance, a number of skirmishes took place in 1926. The formal rebellion began on January 1, 1927 with the rebels calling themselves Cristeros because they felt they were fighting for Christ himself. Just as the Cristeros began to hold their own against the federal forces, the rebellion was ended by diplomatic means, in large part due to the efforts of U.S. Ambassador Dwight Whitney Morrow.

"Last Soldiers, First Pioneers: The Los Adaes Border Community on the Louisiana-Texas Frontier, 1721-1779" by Dr. Frances Galán


===> Click "Last Soldiers, First Pioneers: The Los Adaes Border Community. . ." Part 01

===> Click "Last Soldiers, First Pioneers: The Los Adaes Border Community. . ." Part 02


     My talk basically provides a brief historical background of the Spanish presidio (fort) at Los Adaes from 1721 to 1773, near the present Louisiana-Texas border, where soldiers mostly from New Spain (colonial Mexico) engaged in farming, ranching, and commercial enterprises with their Caddo and French neighbors. Following the abadonment of this fort in 1773, a majority of the Adaeseños (residents from Los Adaes) returned to East Texas from San Antonio and eventually founded the present town of Nacogdoches. Following the text portion of the talk, just prior to the question & answer session, I allude to continued connections between soldier-settlers of Spanish Texas with Natchitoches, Louisiana during the revolutionary upheavels in the early nineteenth century.

     Francis X. Galán graduated with a Ph.D. in history from Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas, in May 2006. The title of his dissertation is "Last Soldiers, First Pioneers: The Los Adaes Border Community on the Louisiana-Texas Frontier, 1721-1779," which is currently under revision as a manuscript for book publication. He has an article forthcoming next year in the journal of Louisiana History entitled, "Presidio Los Adaes: Worship, Kinship, and Commerce with French Natchitoches on the Spanish-Franco-Caddo Borderlands, 1721-1773." Francis was born at the U.S. Naval Air Station in Corpus Christi, Texas, where his father was stationed from 1967 to 1969 as a Lieutenant Commander. Francis currently resides in San Antonio, where he teaches at Northwest Vista College. He is married to Dr. Emma L. Mata-Galán and they have two children, Nicolás Xavier, age 5, and Madison Faith, age 13 months.
