Final book of the trilogy of leading Hispanist Hugh Thomas on the rise of the Spanish Empire in America. World Without End covers the administration and expansion of the American colonies under Philip II, the challenges to an universal Spanish monarchy, or the Spanish presence in the Philippines. Hugh Thomas also talks about a wide-range of issues, such as how Philip II felt unworthy of the vast domains that he inherited from his father, the Spanish plans to conquer China, or the royal attempts to protect the Native Americans from abuse. It’s a very detailed work, and its scholarly nature and structure is not made for a casual audience.
