Abridged version in English translation of approximately the first third of The First New Chronicle and Good Government. The sections included in this volume (pages 1-369 of the manuscript) cover the history of Peru from the earliest times and the lives of each of the Inca rulers and their wives, as well as a wealth of information about ordinances, age grades, the calendar, idols, sorcerers, burials, punishments, jails, songs, palaces, roads, storage houses, and government officials. One hundred forty-six of Guaman Poma's detailed illustrations amplify the text. (The original manuscript contains 1,189 pages accompanied by 398 full-page drawings.)
This volume brings together a range of scholars to explore the countless avenues of inquiry that emerge from Poma's work, including Andean institutions and ecology, Inca governance, Spanish conquest-era history, the relationship of the manuscript to Fray Martin de Muruas chronicles, and much more.
