Description - Imperial Spain 1469-1716 by J. H. Elliott
The story of Spain's rise to greatness from its humble beginnings as one of the poorest and most marginal of Europena countries is a remarkable one. With the marriage of Ferdinand and Isabella, the final expulsion of the Moslems and the discovery of America, Spain took on a seemingly unstoppable dynamism that made it into the world's first global power. This success however created many powerful enemies and this book also charts the dramatic fall of Habsburg Spain.
