Second poll up on the Andean Studies blog

There’s a second poll up on the CLAH Andean Studies section blog, this time on “historians” of the 17th century. In the first, Pedro Cieza de Leon maintains a commanding lead with 7 of 12 votes cast.

Go vote in the second, which includes such ubiquitous 17th century authors as Guaman Poma and Garcilaso de la Vega. Interestingly, one would have to say that Guaman Poma ahs likely had the most impact of 17th c. Andean “historians,” even though his work languished in obscurity during his own lifetime, and long after his death. Still, if we were to use citational counts as a means to establish scholarly reputation, Guaman Poma would be far ahead of all others simply because almost every book on colonial Andean history seems to include at least one of his drawings.
