Fifty years after the arrival of Columbus, at the height of Spain's conquest of the West Indies, Spanish bishop and colonist Bartolom de Las Casas dedicated his Brev sima Relaci n de la Destruici n de las Indias to Philip II of Spain. An impassioned plea on behalf of the native peoples of the West Indies, the Brev sima Relaci n catalogues in horrific detail atrocities it attributes to the king's colonists in the New World. The result is a withering indictment of the conquerors that has cast a 500-year shadow over the subsequent history of that world and the European colonization of it.
