'Feros' far-reaching discussion will be a landmark in the reassessment of this crucial period of Spanish history.' Forum for Modern Language Studies
'Feros has provided a challenging and provocative book that has undertaken the highly ambitious and difficult task of combining traditional political history with the history of ideas ... What Feros says is nothing if not thought-provoking and will repay careful and critical consideration from all specialists in early modern history.' Brill
"Drawing upon extensive archival research and a mastery of relevant secondary materials, he carefully relates the contemporary literature to specific historical events that influenced Spain's foreign and domestic policies...superb volume...Every academic library should purchase it." Choice
"Feros has composed an elegantly written and thoroughly researched monogragh. He has skillfully bridged the gap that until recently detached political studies of sixteenth- century Sapin from those of the seventeenth century." Renaissance Quarterly
"His careful and exhaustive methodolgy...and his analysis of political discourse and patronage networks are most striking." Journal of Interdisciplinary History
"Feros's excellent study of the duke of Lerma's career offers a highly readable narrative that reexamines the major policies and changes in the functioning of the highest spheres of the royal government during Philip III's reign." American Historical Review
"This excellent study joins other recent revisionist analyses of a period hitherto overlooked or underestimated....this is a fine, important, and exciting bbok..." Sixteenth Century Journal
