From the Back Cover:

In this book, now available in paperback, John Lynch has both substantially revised and expanded his now classic account of sixteenth century Spain, Spain Under the Habsburgs Vol 1. The book retains its previous framework and identity, and remains a comprehensive account of the economy, politics and society of Spain, from the national foundations laid by Ferdinand and Isabella to the imperial policy of Charles V, and the world power of Philip II.

The author offers here a reappraisal of many familiar subjects, including the Catholic monarchs and the Inquisition. This volume incorporates new expanded chapters on Spain during the price revolution, and an account of Spain's interaction with its American Empire.

The author also re-interprets the political, social and economic history of Spain, and the absolutism of Philip II. He examines the trend towards regionalism and the devolution of power to local elites, as well as the economic power of the aristocracy and the worsening conditions of the rural poor.

About the Author:

John Lynch has spent most of his academic career in the University of London, first at University College, then the Institute of Latin-American Studies. His research interests have centered on the Hispanic worlds in the colonial and independence periods.
