Publisher Comments:

When J. H. Elliott published Spain and Its World, 1500and#150;1700 some twenty years ago, one of many enthusiasts declared, and#147;For anyone interested in the history of empire, of Europe and of Spain, here is a book to keep within reach, to read, to study and to enjoy" (Times Literary Supplement). Since then Elliott has continued to explore the history of Spain and the Hispanic world with originality and insight, producing some of the most influential work in the field. In this new volume he gathers writings that reflect his recent research and thinking on politics, art, culture, and ideas in Europe and the colonial worlds between 1500 and 1800.

The volume includes fourteen essays, lectures, and articles of remarkable breadth and freshness, written with Elliottand#8217;s characteristic brio. It includes an unpublished lecture in honor of the late Hugh Trevor-Roper. Organized around three themesand#151;early modern Europe, European overseas expansion, and the works and historical context of El Greco, Veland#225;zquez, Rubens, and Van Dyckand#151;the book offers a rich survey of the themes at the heart of Elliottand#8217;s interests throughout a career distinguished by excellence and innovation.
