Críticas:

"This outstanding translation reminds me why La Patria del Criollo is such a vital book. What stays with me more strongly from this work than from any other source is the massive, relentless, and grinding labor-extracting machine in which Guatemala's native peoples were caught during the colonial era. To understand the recent civil war and genocide in Guatemala, and also more global struggles, an understanding of the history that Severo Martinez Pelaez portrays is necessary."--Diane M. Nelson, author of Reckoning: The Ends of War in Guatemala "This is a top-rate translation, and La Patria del Criollo is a very important book, not just for Guatemalan and Central American historiography but for a broader audience of Latin Americanists. First published in 1970, it was well ahead of its time in its subtle analysis of both social relations and the worldview of colonial elites, the criollos of the book's title. The work is a rich example of how structuralists such as Severo Martinez Pelaez were trying to deal with culture and the contingencies of history."--Greg Grandin, author of The Blood of Guatemala: A History of Race and Nation

Reseña del editor:

This translation of Severo Martinez Pelaez's "La Patria del Criollo", a book first published in Guatemala in 1970, makes a classic, controversial work of Latin American history available to English-language readers. Martinez was one of Guatemala's foremost historians and a political activist committed to revolutionary social change. "La Patria del Criollo" is his scathing assessment of Guatemala's colonial legacy. Martinez argues that Guatemala remains a colonial society because the conditions that arose centuries ago when imperial Spain held sway have endured. He maintains that neither independence in 1821 nor liberal reform following 1871 altered economic circumstances that assure prosperity for a few and deprivation for the majority. The few in question are an elite group of criollos, people of Spanish descent born in Guatemala; the majority are predominantly Maya Indians, whose impoverishment is shared by many mixed-race Guatemalans. Martinez asserts that 'the coffee dictatorships were the full and radical realization of criollo notions of the patria'. This patria, or homeland, was one that criollos had wrested from Spaniards in the name of independence and taken control of based on claims of liberal reform. He contends that since labor is needed to make land productive, the exploitation of labor, particularly Indian labor, was a necessary complement to criollo appropriation. His depiction of colonial reality is bleak, his portrayal of Spanish and criollo behavior toward Indians unrelenting in its emphasis on cruelty and oppression. Martinez felt that the grim past he documented surfaces each day in an equally grim present, and that confronting the past is a necessary step in any effort to improve Guatemala's woes. An extensive introduction situates "La Patria del Criollo" in historical context and relates it to contemporary issues and debates.
