'The story of the gypsies of early modern Spain is very much a journey through an often hidden side of that period, for we see things not only from the viewpoint of the strong but also from that of the weak. Thanks to this excellent study [...] we are able to see early modern Spain from a multitude of perspectives that offer a much richer and more complex view of Golden-Age Spain than we have been accustomed to. Scholars and students alike will find reading this book a rewarding experience.' - Trevor Dadson, Hispanic Research Journal

'...a fascinating study that will interest students and general readers alike. It will also be invaluable for specialists seeking to understand the nature and limitations of royal authority in early modern Spain.' - A. Malcolm, The English Historical Review
