Description

Philip II of Spain traditionally has been viewed in a harsh and negative light since his death in 1598, identified with repression, bigotry and fanaticism by his enemies. Kamen, a noted scholar of Spanish history, presents a startling new picture of Philip’s character and reign, finding him to have been a cosmopolitan prince who broadened his cultural imagination and taste, a staunch conservative with tolerant religious attitudes and a supporter of Las Casas and the Indians of America. First full scale biography shedding new light on private/public life. New Haven, CT, 1997, 1st Ed., HB 448 Pgs.
