By Serge Gruzinski

Um texto de historia comparada que visa destacar os paralelismos entre dois fenomenos coevos. Por um lado, a celebre conquista do Mexico pelo contingente espanhol comandado por Cortes e o fim do Imperio Asteca, cuja casa imperial tinha por simbolo a aguia. Por outro, e este menos conhecido, a chegada dos Portugueses a China e o seu primeiro contacto com o Imperio do Meio. Se Cortes chega ao Mexico em 1519, em 1520 chega a Nanquim uma embaixada portuguesa. Pegando nestes episodios e datas, Serge Gruzinski traca um quadro comparativo entre as duas sociedades, numa analise extensa que abarca a cultura, a economia e o poder militar. Uma obra preciosa para se perceber o impacto da expans?o iberica e as realidades que os dois povos da peninsula encontraram em lados opostos do mundo, num movimento de expans?o precursor da globalizac?o.
