From the Publisher"Helen Rawlings combines a thoughtful reading of the vast secondary literature on the Spanish Inquisition with an adroit deployment of samples from the sources and with formidable statistical information. The Spanish Inquisition is a thorough, balanced, and insightful rendering of one of the most controversial topics in history. An excellent book!" Teofilo F Ruiz, University of California, Los Angeles
"Offers insights into a much mythologised and maligned phenomenon and, historiographically, it's bang up to date."
BBC History Magazine
"Helen Rawling's The Spanish Inquisition is an excellent introduction to this complex and controversial subject." H-Net Reviews

Bulletin of Spanish Studies
