Many thanks to our friend and colleague A. Robert Lauer for allowing us to post his "minireseñas" on books dealing with Golden Age Spain and Latin America. These mini-reviews will keep us up to date on the publications of our colleagues and help disseminate our research. Un gran abrazo, Robert!
After a several-months hiatus while I tried to deal with complicated technical issues, the journal is now migrated to another server that will allow us much more flexibility in designing and maintaining the site. If you see errors in your article, please point them out right away to me at
One of the definite advantages of this new "improved" design is the ability to allow comments to articles. These are closely monitored and have to be approved before they appear, but I believe it will lead to stimulating conversations and collaborations.
