    schema:description ""The volume explores the extent to which these rhetorics and the ideology they helped to construct or underpin, reflected or failed to reflect the realities of social, economic, and cultural life in the Spain of the period. It sets against their typically exorbitant claims the lived, messy, and sometimes contradictory experience of Spaniards across a broad social spectrum, both at the centre and at the margins, not just of peninsular society, but of the Hispanic world overseas. As these essays show, confronting ideology were questions of economic pragmatism, executive feasibility, jurisdictional competence, and, above all, the social and political complexity of the Spain of the period."--Jacket."@en ;
