This fall CUP has brought out three of their Spanish history titles in paper back. They are:
and J.A. Fernández-Santamaria’s The State, War and Peace: Spanish Political Thought in the Renaissance 1516-1559.
Just out from Yale University Press, Hugh Thomas’s Beaumarchais in Seville: An Intermezzo. All about the playright’s trip to Seville in the 1760’s and how it inspired The Barber of Seville and The Marriage of Figaro.
The Winter 2008 Renaissance Quarterly is out. No articles on Spain, but several reviews of interest.

In addition to panels focusing on Spanish literature, especially Cervantes, and a series of panels in honor of Robert M. Stevenson, there are three things of special interest to historians.
