Summary

Summary

In order to understand Spanish America, one must begin with Philip II, who at one time controlled a quarter of the world's population. This new edition is brought up to date with new material including photos, map and charts, and an essay in which the author evaluates new works about this 'obsessed personality.' 'A well-managed and impressively clear story.' - The New York Times
