This chapter discusses a surge of publication on science, medicine, and technology that occurred in colonial Spanish America. It argues that empirical studies of these publications resulted in new interpretations and that new interpretations derived from radically new approaches to Ibero-American history increased. This chapter attempts to illustrate and assess these trends by critical discussion of a selection of important publications.

Keywords:   publication, science, medicine, technology, colonial Spanish America, Ibero-American history
