Most widely held works by Bartolomé de las Casas
A short account of the destruction of the Indies by Bartolomé de las Casas( Book )
316 editions published between 1552 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 2,687 libraries worldwide
In 1542, after years of witnessing Indian suffering and slavery, Bartolome de Las Casas wrote this indictment against European exploitation and mistreatment of the native peoples of the New World. The document was dedicated to Prince Philip of Spain and appeared in published form in 1552. It carries all the urgency of a moment in history when it still seemed possible to reverse the tide. --From publisher's description
History of the Indies by Bartolomé de las Casas( Book )
71 editions published between 1875 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,666 libraries worldwide
This book is an epoch-making and controversial work. Not only does it give a lengthy and well-documented account of the Spanish discovery and conquest of the New World from 1492 to 1520, it also contains the first sustained criticism of the conquest, and in relating historical events, it raises much larger questions: the moral issues of war, slavery, human rights and the mission of secular government. -- from Back Cover

The only way by Bartolomé de las Casas( Book )
4 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 536 libraries worldwide
"Bartolome de las Casas (1484-1566) is the key to the quincentenary debate--should we celebrate or should we weep? His was the main cry against the tragic fate of the Indians, the main cry for reform. Until now, he has been known only from incomplete sources. This book begins his rediscovery in 1992." "Parish's introduction shows that Las Casas was barely 18 when he came to America in 1502, spending the next decade as a planter in the West Indies. He befriended the natives, but saw them cruelly massacred and exploited by conquistadors. In 1514 the mounting shock turned him into a defender of the Indians from then until his death at 82. As a priest-colonist, a Dominican friar, a bishop, he fought at court in the New World for their full human rights, using his first book, The Only Way, to great effect. The earliest version produced a papal encyclical on behalf of the Indians, the second motivated an emperor to issue laws protecting them, the third taught a generation of Spanish scholars." "Sullivan's translation of The Only Way to Draw All People to a Living Faith lets us hear Las Casas in full at last. The familiar horrors and denunciations are all there, but so is a gentle voice filled with compassion and yearning for peace. For centuries, the treatise influenced mission theory and practice in many lands; modern writers studied its misiology and its relation to his own mission experiment. But this new version--the lost opening reconstructed, the massive proof texts banished, the original form restored--reveals the doctrine that guided Las Casas' career. In it, he pleads for the way of Christ: evangelization by peaceful charity and respect not by "fire and the sword." Sullivan has given us a brilliant rendering of the powerful central version Fray Bartolome composed at Oaxaca in 1539 to change the conscience of Christendom. The work makes the same appeal to conscience today."--BOOK JACKET
