Item description for America: 500 anos de un nombre: Vida y epoca de Amerigo Vespuccio (Villegas Historia series) by German Arciniegas...

In spite of the fact that an entire continent was named after him, Amerigo Vespucci remains one of the least researched characters in American history. In an attempt to find the man behind the character, this book casts light on the time of Vespucci and on the reasons why many traditional historians do not know much about him, and reveals a man far removed from the fanatical descriptions of his admirers and from the slander of his enemies.
Pese al hecho que todo un continente fuera bautizado en su honor hace 500 aos, Amrigo Vespucci ha sido uno de los personajes menos estudiados de la historia americana. En un intento de encontrar el hombre detrs del personaje, este libro arroja luces sobre la poca en que vivi Vespucci y las razones para su desconocimiento por muchos historiadores tradicionales, y revela un Vespucci muy distante del descrito por el fanatismo de sus admiradores o la maledicencia de sus detractores.
