(p.7) Chapter 1 A Shared Political Culture
“We Are Now the True Spaniards”
Stanford University Press

To comprehend the nature of political culture in late eighteenth-century New Spain, it is necessary to dispel misperceptions about the political system of the Spanish Monarchy and the political theory and practice that supported it. This chapter examines the characteristics of the Antiguo Régimen; the nature of representation within the composite Spanish Monarchy; the formation of American identity; and the eighteenth-century Bourbon reforms designed to centralize and improve the administration of the worldwide Spanish Monarchy.

Keywords:   New Spain, political system, Spanish Monrachy, Antiguo Régimen, American identity, Bourbon reforms
