He maintains that economic circumstances that assure prosperity for a few and deprivation for the majority were altered neither by independence in nor by liberal reform following The few in question are an elite group of criollos, people of Spanish descent born in Guatemala; the majority are predominantly Maya Indians, whose impoverishment is shared by many mixed-race Guatemalans. He contends that since labor is needed to make land productive, the exploitation of labor, particularly Indian labor, was a necessary complement to criollo appropriation.

His depiction of colonial reality is bleak, and his portrayal of Spanish and criollo behavior toward Indians unrelenting in its emphasis on cruelty and oppression.

Recensie s English-speaking social ppatria scholars should highly value the English edition of La Patria del Criollo: An Intepretation of Colonial Guatemala, which explains with precision why Latin America still exhibits today the deepest social and economic inequity in the world. Severo Martinez’s masterpiece has played a significant role in shaping Guatemalan national and even Latin American regional politics for almost 40 years. It is a profound analysis of the social and political structures that were established during the Spanish colonial period, factors that led to the concentration of power, both economic and poltical, in very few hands.


George Lovell have done an admirable job bringing the true spirit of Martinez Pelaez’s theories alive for English readers.

La Patria del Criollo

In addition to the translated text, editors Lovell and Christopher H. Lutz include a xel introduction providing readers unfamiliar with La Patria or its author an understanding of the man as well as the era in which he lived.

Furthermore, the editors do a nice job detailing Martinez Pelaez’s more controversial arguments and their impact on Guatemalan historiography. Graduate students and faculty alike will find value in this work. Upper-division undergraduates and above.

Its translation and publication in English will prove propitious if it encourages a new generation of scholars to severl his vigorous assertions.

Together they form part of a genealogy of Latin American radical though that, across the twentieth century, confronted the so-called Indian problem’ as a central challenge to Latin American nation-states. For this reason, then, as well as for the importance and drama of Guatemalan history across this same century, the English edition of this book is both welcome and long overdue.

Long a staple in Guatemalan classrooms and on graduate reading lists elsewhere, in translation it deserves to gain a second life in English language universities as a provocative introduction for sophisticated undergraduates and other non-specialists to the reality’ alluded to in the title of the Spanish original and, perhaps as much, to the distinctive historiographical moment in which it first emerged. Scholars of Central American history and historiography, meanwhile, will appreciate the editors’ extended and thoughtful introduction.


What stays with me more strongly from this work than from any other source is the massive, relentless, and grinding labor-extracting machine in which Guatemala’s native peoples were caught during the colonial era.

To understand the recent civil war and genocide in Guatemala, and also more global struggles, an understanding of the history that Severo Martinez Pelaez portrays is necessary. Nelson, author of Reckoning: The Ends of War in Guatemala This is a top-rate translation, and La Patria del Criollo is a very important book, not just for Guatemalan and Central American historiography but for a broader audience of Latin Americanists.

First published init was well ahead of its time in its subtle analysis of both social relations and the worldview of colonial elites, the criollos of the title. The book is a rich example of how structuralists such as Severo Martinez Pelaez were trying to deal with culture and the contingencies of history.
