    Description
    Information
    Henry Kamen's superb book sheds fascinating new light on Imperial Spain's journey to power, from the capture of Moorish Granada to the opening up of the frontiers in Texas and California.

    Drawing on extensive research and eye-witness accounts, he overturns our traditional view of the all-conquering enemy of Protestant Europe, demonstrating that the Spanish Empire was above all a global, collaborative venture, which depended as much on the cooperation (willing or otherwise) of native Americans, Africans and Asians as that of Europeans for its success.

    It was, he argues, this diversity of resources and peoples that made Spain's impact on world history so overwhelming.
