Product Description


"I.A.A. Thompson and Bartolomé Yun Casalilla have produced a coherent and stimulating collection of well-translated articles through careful selection and integration of the works included, and they capably reach their five goals." Sixteenth Century Journal

"...a clearly written and well-translated volume that will introduce to a wider reading public some of the debates taking place within an increasingly lively and cosmopolitan historiographic tradition." James S. Amelang, Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"...historians working on other countries and other aspects of the early modern period, especially those interested in the problems of industrialization and development, will profit from the research and conclusions presented here." the Journal of Modern History

"The essays provide important knowledge and raise important questions." Akira Motomura, The Journal of Economic History

Book Description

This is a collection of recent revisionist essays on the economic and social history of seventeenth-century Castile by Spanish historians. The aim if the volume is to draw the attention of English-speaking scholars to the new approaches, techniques and source materials that have transformed Catalan economic and social history over the past two decades and to make available in English the most important of the conclusions that have undermined the old but still standard orthodoxies of the textbooks, but that have been acceible hitherto only to specialists.
