This is a collection of recent revisionist essays by Spanish historians on the economic and social history of seventeenth-century Castile. The major areas of current historiographical interest and debate are covered: demography, agriculture, pastoralism, the Indies trade, industrial decline, de-urbanization, taxation and the fiscal system, re-segneurialization, and the politics of redistribution. Developments in Castile are also related to the issue of the general crisis of the European economy in the seventeenth century.

"I.A.A. Thompson and Bartolome Yun Casalilla have produced a coherent and stimulating collection of well-translated articles through careful selection and integration of the works included, and they capably reach their five goals." Sixteenth Century Journal "...a clearly written and well-translated volume that will introduce to a wider reading public some of the debates taking place within an increasingly lively and cosmopolitan historiographic tradition." James S. Amelang, Journal of Interdisciplinary History "...historians working on other countries and other aspects of the early modern period, especially those interested in the problems of industrialization and development, will profit from the research and conclusions presented here." the Journal of Modern History "The essays provide important knowledge and raise important questions." Akira Motomura, The Journal of Economic History
