Spain from the 16th to the 18th century



ID: <10670/1.uuwvi9>


At the 16th and 17th centuries, the Spanish monarchy ringes across Europe through the power of its armies. Thanks to the extent of her possessions, from Manila to Barcelona, from Madrid to Mexico, it reaches an unparalleled dimension. His precious metals inundate the continent as his masterpieces disrupt artistic creation with Don Juan, Don Quichood or Le Cid. From Charles Quint to the Golden century, from Enlightenment to Revolutionary Greening, this book shows the history of the Spanish royal between 1516 and 1788. It analyses the contingencies and transformations and political practices that prefigure Spain for the 19th and 20th centuries. Supplemented by a series of documents, which offer methods of reflection and comment, and by tools (a glossary, chronology and bibliography), this book will enable any student to acquire the knowledge needed to make a precise look at the history of Spain.
