In The Atlantic World and the Manila Galleons. Circulation, Market, and Consumption of Asian Goods in the Spanish Empire, 1565-1650, Jose L. Gasch-Tomas offers an account of the trade of Chinese silk and porcelain, and Japanese pieces of furniture, between colonial Spanish America and Asia across the Pacific Ocean, during the late sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The author also addresses the re-exportation of Asian goods from Spanish America to Iberia, the consumption of these goods in the Spanish Empire, and the conflicts derived from growing exchanges between the Americas and East Asia both in the international area and within the Spanish Empire. Making use of extensive historical sources, this book balances the predominant view on the history of the encounter between the Atlantic World and Asia during the early modern era, which on the Atlantic side stresses the importance of the Cape route, by using a framework that puts the Pacific Ocean and Spanish American elites in the centre of the explanation.
