In this remarkable revisionist study, Webb shows that English imperial policy was shaped by a powerful and sustained militaristic, autocratic tradition that openly defined English empire as the imposition of state control by force on dependent people. He describes the entire military connection that found expression in the garrisoned cities of England, Scotland, and Ireland and ultimately in the palisaded plantations of Jamaica, Virginia, and New England.

The Governors and the Franciscans contains the only, at least, up to the moment {there must be something beyond narrative and primary documents} chronological record ["The history of the province from the fall of Acoma on December 4, 1598, to the great revolt of 1680, can never be made complete, for lack of data." ---George Bancroft, Bancroft Public Library, Berkeley, California."]["An accurate account of the building of Santa Fe and annals from founding of Villa down to the Peublo Revolt of 1680 will probably never be written."] --Ralph Twitchell Santa Fe, New Mexico} of the explicit as well as implicit; un-real as well as real; subjective as well as objective; and ideal as well as representative history of New Mexico; and as such paralells the juirisdiction of the three principal Spaniish law decrees of the sixteenth century.
