Bartolome de Las Casas Reading Although the textbook and the reading both present the same story there are some differences between the two The main difference is that the book is more pro-Spanish than the reading For example while the book merely states that some of the Spanish conquistadors were unjust and harmed the native it does not go into much detail on the subject However the reading states that the Spanish invaders committed atrocities such as killing a pregnant woman Furthermore it affirms that they Spanish committed terrible acts such as this throughout the Caribbean Although the reading is harder to read and digest than the textbook mainly due to the archaic language used it is a very good resource It is important to study events in history from more than one viewpoint so that one can obtain a clearer understanding of what really happened without any bias Therefore this reading is very valuable as it provides a contrast with the textbook from which we can try to piece together what really happened The impact of this material is great upon me The packet contains many horrendous depictions of the actions of the Spanish invaders and it shows that while perhaps they originally meant well they soon became caught up in their greed for money and particularly gold which they believed existed in the area This shows that mankinds attention can easily be averted and mislead
