Overview

Early Modern Spain: A Social History explores the solidarities which held the Spanish nation together at this time of conflict and change. Drawing on recent research, the book explores the pattern of fellowship and patronage at the local level which contributed to

the notable absence of popular revolts characteristic of other European countries at this time. Social control was influenced by the Counter-Revolution, which transformed religious attitudes. Early Modern Spain analyzes the impact of these changes on family life and popular

culture more generally. Focusing on the main themes of the development of capitalism, the growth of the state and religious upheaval, this comprehensive social history sheds light on changes throughout Europe in the critical early modern period.
