Book description

Iberia stands at the center of key trends in Atlantic and world histories, largely because Portugal and Spain were the first European kingdoms to 'go global'. The Early Modern Hispanic World engages with new ways of thinking about the early modern Hispanic past, as a field of study that has grown exponentially in recent years. It focuses predominantly on questions of how people understood the rapidly changing world in which they lived - how they defined, visualized, and constructed communities from family and city to kingdom and empire. To do so, it incorporates voices from across the Hispanic World and across disciplines. The volume considers the dynamic relationships between circulation and fixedness, space and place, and how new methodologies are reshaping global history, and Spain's place in it.


'The Early Modern Hispanic World is a remarkable book. Lynn and Rowe have artfully brought together a valuable collections of essays, written by a veritable constellation of American and European scholars, which provide an erudite examination of the early Hispanic world. This is an extraordinary contribution to our understanding of that world.'

Teofilo F. Ruiz - University of California, Los Angeles

'This book is a well-deserved tribute to Professor Richard Kagan that points to new and promising directions in the history of the early modern Spanish world.'

Antonio Feros - University of Pennsylvania

'With contributions from established and emerging historical interpreters of the early modern Spanish world, Lynn and Rowe's wide-ranging collection features an exciting array of original, interpretative strands leading into subjects old and new.'

Kenneth Mills - University of Michigan

'Lynn and Rowe have put together a very interesting and diverse series of articles aimed at the early modern period of Spain. … Many of the articles demonstrate a tremendous breadth of research. Indeed, as John Elliott states in the conclusion, ‘… the vitality of the essays in this volume indicate something of the enormous potential for creative work that the study of early modern Spain offers both now and for the future'. Anyone interested in this period of Spanish history would greatly enjoy this collection. … Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.'

D. L. Tengwall Source: Choice

'In this valuable volume, Lynn and Rowe offer a ‘state of the field’ analysis of early modern Spanish studies. … It will serve seasoned experts, and it will provide an excellent introduction to the field for graduate students, exposing them to the wide range of methods at work in early modern Spanish studies.'
