The seventeenth century has gained enormously from the resurgence of historical studies in Spain and from the contributions of historians outside the penninsula. In this book, John Lynch has taken account of this research to substantially revise and expand his Spain Under the Hapsburgs, Volume II . It retains its previous framework, and provides a penetrating account of Spanish society, economy, government and politics during this period.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Many besides Hispanists who rejoiced in 1964-9 when Professor Lynch gave them a balanced and thoroughly readable account of the two centuries of Spanish history under the Habsburgs must warmly welcome the new editions which form part of Blackwell's History of Spain." History

"This useful collection deserves a wide readership. The appearance of a revised version of the second volume of John Lynch's Spain under the Habsburgs is welcome." European History Quarterly

"It is still the major work of synthesis written in English. The fact that it is but one part of an ambitious fourteen volume collection covering Spanish history from prehistoric to modern times perhaps enhances its value." Sixteenth Century Journal
