Description - The Reign of Charles V by William Maltby
Charles V ruled the first truly global empire. His reign saw, amongst other things, the conquests of Mexico and Peru, the religious transformation of Europe by the Protestant and Catholic Reformations, and the establishment of a Habsburg empire in Eastern Europe. Maltby's engaging new study not only looks at the emperor as a person, but also examines such important critical issues as his policies and their consequences. Concise and readable, it provides an indispensable introduction to an era that changed the world.
