What People are Saying About This

Josefina Zoralda Vázquez

"Benson's work is of such significant importance to the field that it has been considered a classic since first appearing in Spanish in 1955. Her new version in English includes recently found documents that further improve on the original text. No serious work on the period should be carried out without consulting it."
