About the Author

Carlos R. Herrera is Professor of History and Director of the Borderlands Institute at San Diego State University-Imperial Valley. His numerous articles have appeared in the Journal of the Southwest and Journal of the History of Sexuality.


The product of exhaustive archival research, Carlos Herrera's comprehensive, cradle-to-grave biography of Juan Bautista de Anza is a highly significant contribution to the history of the American Southwest and northern Mexico. Herrera demonstrates that in addition to his prowess as a military leader Anza was the instrument of fundamental change in Spanish colonial New Mexico through his implementation of the Bourbon Reforms, a series of measures to consolidate royal authority and power. This outstanding study, especially Herrera's penetrating look at church-state relations in the colony, is one of the most thorough examinations of New Mexico in the late colonial period."" - Rick Hendricks New Mexico State Historian and coauthor of The Witches of Abiquiu, 1756 - 1766: The Governor, the Priest, the Genizaros, and the Devil
