The Comuneros of Castile
The Forging of a Revolution, 1475–1521
Stephen Haliczer

The Comunero Revolution of 1520-21, argues Stephen Haliczer in this unprecedented study, was not merely a reaction of the moment to the inept government of Charles I, but had its roots in policies established decades before, during the reign of Ferdinand and Isabella. His work, based on extensive research in Spanish achieves and employing new methods of analysis, also challenges the long-held assumption that the Catholic monarchs were successful in establishing political stability in Castile. This is a ground-breaking work, sure to stimulate reevaluation of the political history of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century Spain. It will also be of interest and value to students and scholars concerned with the history of popular movements and the origins of the modern state.


Stephen Haliczer is assistant professor in the department of history at Northern Illinois University.
