The work fills an important gap in the institutional history of new Mexico during the last years of the colonial period. Focusing on the operation of Spanish government in the oldest province of the borderlands area, it reveals that the administrative machinery was far more elaborate and complex than one might expect to find in a frontier district. In delving into a little-explored field, Simmons opens new windows on an obscure phase of colonial New Mexican history.
