When Cultures Clash: Revisiting the 'Spanish-Chamorro Wars' offers the reader additional insights on the arrival of Spanish missionaries to the Marianas in 1668, calling into question standard textbook narratives of forced conversion, rapid cultural change, precipitous decline, and the loss of Chamorro identity. According to author Francis X. Hezel, S.J., the clash of the cultures was real, but Chamorro people may have had more power in determining their fate than earlier historians traditionally thought.
