. Compiledby Juan José Falla. 3 vols. Guatemala, 1994-2001. Pp. 558 (v. 1); 563 (v. 2); 579(v. 3). Maps. Indices. 180 Quetzales per volume; 500 Quetzales for the set.This labor of love by the Guatemalan lawyer, amateur historian and genealogist,Juan Jose Falla, is an invaluable research tool for anybody working on early colonialGuatemala (up to ca. 1650). Due to the author’s interests, including where prominentSpanish and Creole
lived in the city of Santiago de Guatemala, the notarialrecord extracts concentrate on wills and testaments, mortgages,
and purchasesand sales of buildings. There is also a lesser emphasis on rural properties, sales of African slaves, and
. Other topics such as labor contracts, apprentice-ships, guarantees, shipments of goods and legal powers are not included.Atotal of thirty-three
are represented in these large volumes, cover-ing all of their extant notarial registers from 1538 to 1659. Much like an encyclo-pedia the data are presented alphabetically by the escribanos’surnames, divided intothe three tomes. While some students and researchers may only consult theseextracts, others may use them as an invaluable guide to the original notarial regis-ters housed in the Archivo General de Centroamérica or copies available elsewhereon microfilm. Despite the author’s genealogical bent, the social historian will findnumerous extracts of documents concerning non-elites. Each of the three large vol-umes has a map of Santiago with numbered blocks to aid in the location of specifichouses as well as a meticulously prepared index. While Falla does not pretend tohave undertaken an exhaustive coverage of the early
, these volumes arean important resource for colonial Guatemalan historiography and should not beoverlooked by any scholar interested in this region and time period. The care andprecision with which Falla has undertaken this project is exemplary and could wellserve as a model for any individual or team undertaking such an ambitious project.The three-volume set was privately published but the author has donated theprint run to the Museo Popol Vuh in Guatemala City. For information regardingordering and shipping, the current contact person at the Museo Popol Vuh is MariaEugenia de Mayen (popolvuh@ufm.edu.gt).

. By Alejandro Solomianski. Rosario:Beatriz Viterbo Editora, 2003. Pp. 288. Notes. Bibliography. No price.Alejandro Solomianski sets out to unmask and “decipher” what he describes as“la represión y las representaciones de la afroargentinidad en la configuración delimaginario nacional” (p. 19). In order to do so, he examines how a number of “foun-dational” Argentine authors—Echeverría, Mármol, Sarmiento, Ingenieros, Lugones,
