KIRKUS REVIEW

Mr. Blacker has selected the essential parts of Prescott's four great works on the rise and fall of the Spanish Empire: Ferdinand and Isabella; The Conquest of Mexico; The Conquest of Peru; and Phillip II. In this one volume presentation with a biographical and critical introduction by the editor they achieve a dramatic continuity as well as a condensation which makes them accessible to the general reader perhaps dismayed by the length of the original work.
