(p.14) One Entry
The Other West

Marcello Carmagnani

University of California Press

America's entry into the Western world is the result of a process whose first phase is from the discovery by Christopher Columbus in 1942 from 1570. Latin America became Westernized because of its discovery by Europe. The initial collision between Iberians and Indians in the sixteenth century defines the central phase of colonization from about 1630 from about 1750. Amerindians and Iberians had essentially a local vision of their history and culture that offered no framework for interpreting their new experiences although Europe and America were known as group of nations that also have a continental history. The European invasion was not simply a matter of arms but also entailed the use of cultural and organizational resources by both parties.
