Sinopsis:

Book by Hackel Steven W

Críticas:

"Meticulously researched . . . a must-read for anyone interested in Serra, California, or the history of colonialism in the Americas."
--"Publishers Weekly
""A consummate archivist of California history, Hackel has produced a definitive Golden State biography."
--"Kirkus Reviews
""At last, in Steven W. Hackel's "Junipero Serra," we have an intelligent and authoritative biography of the founder of California. Hackel's engaging narrative deftly transports us to the end of the eighteenth century and the frontier of the Spanish empire. His Serra is neither sinner nor saint, but rather a devout idealist who quietly helps unleash powerful forces of social change. "Junipero Serra "is an essential contribution to the history of the West."
--Hector Tobar, author of "The Barbarian Nurseries
""Junipero Serra was a man for all seasons: a saint as well as an ogre, a 'founding father, ' an agricultural visionary, and a merciless imperialist--in short, a figure whose legacy is nothing if not polarizing. Steven W. Hackel is a courageous biographer. His portrait of the Franciscan priest who invented California doesn't shy away from controversy: it is as evenhanded as it is humane. It proves, yet again, that this nation wasn't built only by Puritans; it was also shaped by Spanish conquistadores, explorers, and missionaries whose choices continue to define us in countless ways."
--Ilan Stavans, general editor of "The Norton Anthology of Latino Literature
""Steven W. Hackel's stunning biography so fully re-creates Father Junipero Serra's eighteenth-century life that one can almost feel the passionate certitude and searing drive that Serra employed to convert so many native Californians to Christianity and the cultural destruction and human emptiness that Serra's success unleashed upon them after his death. Hackel's exhaustive research quietly magnifies the measured judgments that propel this compellingly intimate yet historically expansive biography. It surpasses anything ever written about the West Coast's most potent and controversial 'founding father.'"
--Jon Butler, Professor of History, Yale University, and author of "Becoming America
""In this rich portrait of Father Junipero Serra, we see entire worlds collide, overlap, and forever influence one another. As complex and remarkable as the times in which he lived, Serra has long deserved a careful, smart, and judicious study, and now we have it."
--William Deverell, chair, Department of History, University of Southern California
"Steven W. Hackel's "Junipero Serra "is both a compelling narrative and a comprehensive study of the complexities of Serra's life and the transformative events of his time. A masterpiece."
--Jose Refugio de la Torre Curiel, author of "Twilight of the Mission Frontier
"""Junipero Serra "is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of California and for lovers of biography."
--Sylvia L. Hilton, coeditor of "Nexus of Empire"

Hackel's volume sets a new scholarly standard and should be read by anyone interested in the early history of California.--Robert M. Senkewicz "Journal of San Diego History "

Steven W. Hackel's "Junipero Serra: California's Founding Father" dispels the myths (both laudatory and demonizing) surrounding the man who founded missions up and down California in the 18th century. But it is far more than a corrective. It's a tale of Spain, Mexico, and America; of faith, politics, and pioneering; and of a man who was neither wholly sinner nor saint. "Zocalo Public Square"
