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.

"Many besides Hispanists who rejoiced in 1964-9 when ProfessorLynch gave them a balanced and thoroughly readable account of thetwo centuries of Spanish history under the Habsburgs must warmlywelcome the new editions which form part of Blackwell's Historyof Spain." History

"This useful collection deserves a wide readership. Theappearance of a revised version of the second volume of JohnLynch's Spain under the Habsburgs is welcome." EuropeanHistory Quarterly

"It is still the major work of synthesis written in English. Thefact that it is but one part of an ambitious fourteen volumecollection covering Spanish history from prehistoric to moderntimes perhaps enhances its value." Sixteenth CenturyJournal
