Promotional Information

"Jesuit Accounts of the Colonial Americas constitutes a significant and important contribution to research in a dynamic field of study that is currently undergoing an intense scholarly renewal. The comparative angle, the theoretical contributions, the focus on the complex and lesser-known eighteenth century, and the prominent role given to the impact of the expulsion of the Jesuits make this an outstanding collection." -- Andreas Motsch, Department of French, University of Toronto
