This review is from: Imperial Spain, 1469-1716 (Pelican) (Paperback)
This is the standard history of its subject. It is written in a rather dry, academic manner,and seems rather dated. It takes for granted some areas which could have been covered in more detail (eg the Armada), and is very eurocentric, with very little on the American Empire.
