Between 1808 and 1825, Latin America was engulfed in a wave of revolution that destroyed the Spanish empire in the Americas. This book studies the process of imperial collapse in one of these Spanish colonies: the Viceroyalty of New Granada, the future Republic of Colombia. Rebecca Earle makes extensive use of previously unexplored Spanish documents to suggest that Spanish royalists inadvertently engineered their own defeat.

“. . . absolutely outstanding. Earle is at the cutting edge of recent historiography reexamining the nature of the Spanish American Wars of Independence and this book will serve to stimulate other similar studies of the royalist struggle and collapse elsewhere in South America.” –Professor Christon I. Archer, Department of History, University of Calgary (Professor Christon I. Archer)
“[Earle] has reviewed an impressive array of printed primary and secondary sources, including many obscure titles. She provides a helpful glossary and chronology, an exhaustive bibliography, three maps, and a table . . . this welcome contribution is likely to remain a standard reference for many years.” –The International History Review, June 2001 (xxiii, 2) (The International History Review)
