Description du livre Yale University Press, United States, 2000. Paperback. État : New. Revised ed.. 230 x 156 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. From 1556 until his death in 1598, Philip II of Spain ruled the first global empire in history, yet no one so far has analyzed precisely how he accomplished this feat. The author investigates the strengths and weaknesses of Philip s strategic vision, the priorities that underlay his policies, the practices and prejudices that influenced his decision-making, and the external factors that affected the achievement of his goals. Geoffrey Parker begins by defining the characteristics of Spain s strategic culture: the king s distinctive system of government, the information overload that threatened to engulf it, and the various strategic priorities and assumptions used to overcome the disparity between aims and means. He then explores the surviving documentation (from the Habsburgs, their allies, and their adversaries) on the formation of strategy in three crucial case studies: Philip s unsuccessful efforts to maintain his authority in the Netherlands, his defective peacetime management of foreign relations with Scotland and England, and his failed Armada campaign against England.Finally Parker examines the small but fatal flaws in the execution of Philip s Grand Strategy, assesses the response of the king and his ministers to their failures, and questions whether the outcome might have been different with other policy options, another ruler, or a different strategic culture. Pointing to modern parallels between Philip s problems of governance and those facing Hitler and Churchill, or Kennedy and Johnson, this powerfully argued book provides a fascinating commentary on the nature of empires and the decision-making process as practiced by great powers.

Description du livre Yale University Press, United States, 2000. Paperback. État : New. New edition. 230 x 156 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This fascinating book is highly original, in that it specifically analyses how Philip II of Spain ruled the first global empire in history, from 1556 to his death in 1598. Geoffrey Parker investigates the strengths and weaknesses of Philip s strategic vision, the priorities that underlay his policies, the practices and prejudices that influenced his decision-making, and the external factors that affected the achievement of his goals. Geoffrey Parker is Andreas Dorpalen Professor of History at The Ohio State University, and winner of the 2012 Heineken History Prize. Among his other books is Global Crisis: War, Climate Change and Catastrophe in the Seventeenth Century . A splendid study .Parker offers an enthralling analysis , Henry Kamen, Times Literary Supplement A deeply-researched, sublime and immensely satisfying analysis of the policies of one of the most important figures in western and world history during the past one thousand years. Paul Kennedy This is a history that moves backward from the strategic concerns of today; that gives it an edge and an immediacy few other books on Philip have achieved .A highly detailed but also immensely readable book. Anthony Pagden, New York Times Book Review Basing his work on the mass of unpublished letters, declarations and notes that the prudent king wrote and received .Parker leads us with consummate skill through the thorny problems of Philip s reign. Hugh Thomas, Wall Street Journal .history on a grand scale. In it, Parker has distilled the fruit of thirty years research and writing, which have made him the leading authority on Spain s relations with Northern Europe in the early modern era .A highly sophisticated and stimulating work. Bruce Taylor, History: Review of New Books. N° de réf. du libraire AAW9780300082739
