Mariano Vallejo's 1875 History of Spanish and Mexican California: An Annotated Translation and Biographical Study

This project will publish for the first time Vallejo's five-volume 1875 history of Spanish and Mexican California. In this seminal document he argued that the culture and experiences of his own Hispanic people deserved a significant place in the narrative of American history. Vallejo maintained that California before the US conquest exhibited significant social, cultural, and political achievements, of which the American newcomers, blinded by racial stereotyping, were unaware. The manuscript is a rich and relatively untapped source for a deeper understanding of the cultural diversity, social tensions, and multiple identities that feature prominently in the historical and contemporary study of the "borderlands." The completed project will be an accessible, accurate publication of the manuscript, complemented by a substantial critical introduction and extensive scholarly annotations that will include the latest research on 19th century California, the US Southwest and northern Mexico.
