Praise

Advance praise for The Golden Empire
 
“One of history’s greatest upheavals plays out as melodrama and picaresque in this rousing saga of the founding of Spain’s Latin American empire. . . . This story of the desperadoes who stole a hemisphere makes for gripping, old-fashioned narrative history, grand in scope and colorful in detail.”—Publishers Weekly

Praise for Hugh Thomas’s Rivers of Gold
 
“Magisterial . . . a grand and sweeping account of the world’s transformation half a millennium ago.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“Big, bold, informative, and meticulously researched. It is the kind of ‘history in the grand manner’ for which Thomas . . . is famous.”—The Washington Post
 
“A larger-than-life mural, at once ruthless, expansive, and colorful.”—The Boston Globe
 
“Thomas is a master of the two staples of well-written histories: character and plot.”—The Miami Herald

“Majestic . . . thrilling prose.”—The San Diego Union-Tribune
