Book Reviews

In content the third volume of the Bandelier series deals wholly
with New Mexico in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. In
the seventeenth century church-state relations were often strained,
giving rise to much discussion and controversy. Conflicts with the
Inquisition, missionary endeavors, and the events surrounding the
Pueblo Revolt of 1680 are dealt with in detail. Nearly every
phase of administration in a distant province is touched upon,
whether religious or political. The story continues to 1773. This
volume makes a remarkable record and one that will be of in-
estimable value to students of the Southwest.
Though for the seventeenth century much new and more com-
plete documentary material has been revealed by France Scholes
in the New Mexico Historical Review, the Bandelier documents
are a splendid compilation. Every student of the Southwest will
have to consult them, for contributions of this nature are never
outmoded. Sincere praise is due the Carnegie Institution of Wash-
ington for initiating and supporting this project and to Dr. Hackett
for the scholarly editing of the work.

The present Handbook comes much nearer being a real guide
to the materials published in 1936 in the various humanistic fields
in Spanish America than its predecessor. Not only are the sections
previously covered much fuller, but the addition of new sections
on Art, Education, Folklore, and International Relations makes
the guide much more comprehensive and representative of the
activity in all the phases of Spanish-American culture. As a re-
sult the volume is twice as large as that listing the materials for
1935. The number of items under each of the fields covered is
as follows: Anthropology, 340; Art, 97; Economics, 696; Edu-
cation, 63; Folklore, 30; Geography, 221; Government, 166; His-
