Christina H. Lee

Studies in Early Modern European History MUP

  • New in paperback
  • Provides a counter-point to studies on marginality by focusing on how dominant groups reacted and responded to the social and racial 'passing' of lowborns and New Christians
  • Provides a new intervention in our current understanding of how Spanish identity was constructed in the early modern period
  • Uses a vast array of literary and non-literary sources to discuss the social tensions that existed between the established elite and the socially mobile
  • Written in a clear style, accessible to both historians and literary critics
