Dr. Gil-Osle article published in Journal of Modern History
Dr. Juan Pablo Gil-Osle,
Spanish, recently published a co-translation of
the article, “Monarchy as Conquest: Violence, Social Opportunity,
Political Stability in the Establishment of the Hispanic
Monarchy,” authored by the historians José Javier Ruiz Ibáñez and Gaetano
The Journal of Modern History 81 (2009),
pp. 501-536, from the University of Chicago Press. This
article deals with the transformations of the conceptualization of
the monarchy that emerged in the Iberian Peninsula during the early
modern period. This reconceptualization became a tremendously
powerful instrument of sociopolitical change that both facilitated
territorial expansion in Aragon, Granada, Naples, Navarra, North
Africa, the Mexican Triple Alliance and the Low Countries, as well
as allowing the rapid remodeling of conquered societies into constituent
populations. These societies were then reorganized with the monarchy
as a necessary arbitrator.
