Ralph Bauer presents a comparative investigation of colonial prose narratives in Spanish and British America from 1542 to 1800. He discusses narratives of shipwreck, captivity, and travel, as well as imperial and natural histories of the New World in the context of transformative early modern scientific ideologies. Bauer positions the narrative models promoted by the 'New Sciences' during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries within the context of the geopolitical question of how knowledge can be centrally controlled in outwardly expanding empires.

Bauer packs in many of the foundational principles of hemispheric study in this relatively short work: "private"/"public" works, center/periphery, various notions of space and frontier, treatment of the "other", etc. Plus, his notion of "epistemic mercantilism" is an intriguing way to treat knowledge production in the early Americas.
