Synopsis:

This intriguing book argues that the sixteenth-century treaties King Philip III forged with Spain's most powerful enemies were not intended to ensure a permanent peace. Instead, the author shows, Philip's plan was to lull his foes, thereby enabling Spain to regain its strength after fifty years of incessant and expensive warfare. Ending the truce and resuming war with the Dutch, the English, and the French were all a part of the grand strategy.

From the Back Cover: "Allen's work is pioneering -- his book is the first careful study of a crucial moment in the evolution of western European diplomatic strategies." - Henry Kamen, author of Philip of Spain and The Spanish Inquisition
