Summary: The authors explore three interlinking themes. First, they assert that Mexican American Borderlands culture cannot be fully understood without knowledge of its medieval underpinnings in both Castile and England. Second, they argue that certain parallels in the medieval evolution of Hispanic and Anglo societies make the two cultures much more related that is often realized. Finally, the authors show how, despite these similarities, the origins of Anglo-Hispanic tensions trace back to the Middle Ages, predating Bartolome de Casa and the "Black Legend."
