Description

Sixteenth Century Essays & Studies, Vol. 61

This collection of eleven essays furthers the dialogue between early modern history and the social sciences through an analysis of Fernand Braudel’s the Mediterranean and the Mediterranean World of Philip II. The contributors review various historiographical traditions to arrive at conclusions on contemporary theory and practice in the exchange between history and the disciplines of geography, economics, sociology, anthropology, politics (diplomatic history and the study of revolutions), psychology (law), religion, and area studies (China and the Americas).

The breadth of coverage from so many disciplines, combined with the depth in history, make it unique.

—Helen Nader
