The Indies of the Setting Sun charts the Spanish vision of a transpacific imperial expanse, beginning with Balboa's discovery of the South Sea and ending almost one hundred years later with Spain's final push for control of the Pacific. Padrón traces a series of attempts-both cartographic and discursive-to map the space from Mexico to Malacca, revealing the geopolitical imaginations at play in the quest for control of the New World and Asia.
