All in all, "Philip IV and the Government of Spain" is a good book and an excellent one indeed concerning its subject matter. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find a book written on Philip IV that isn't patently condemnatory in tone.

All in all, "Philip IV and the Government of Spain" is a good book and an excellent one indeed concerning its subject matter. Case in point: the National Enquirer-like book by Martin Hume written some 70 years ago. In contrast, Mr. Stradling is an intelligent and discerning writer, who, I feel, makes a pretty good case that Philip was less of the conscience-stricken fool than historians make him out to be. That being said, the main problem with the book by Stradling.

This book concentrates on the political history of the reign of Philip IV, and the role of the king within i. Although not intended as a conventional biography, the book retains several characteristics of the form, in that it is a 'career-study', part thematic, part chronological.

Stradling, R. Philip IV and the Government of Spain, 1621–1665. Born on April 8, 1605, Philip IV succeeded his father, Philip III, in 1621. Philip's principal minister, Gaspar de Guzmán, Count of Olivares, dominated his councils and was the effective ruler of Spain for more than 20 years.

This book concentrates on the political history of the reign of Philip IV, and the role of the king within it. Philip is kept near the forefront, and issues and events are often seen - if sometimes critically - from his viewpoint. It is, therefore, a work of revision and rehabilitation, representing an attempt (against all other extant accounts) to establish Philip IV as a positive figure, with an autonomous character and political identity. A secondary, supportive, intention is to demonstrate that after the fall of Olivares, the king ruled and governed without a favourite (valido). This is the central theme in the most detailed treatment of the second half of the reign available in any language. Reference is made throughout to Philip's own words and actions. At the same time, the Olivares period itself is approached from a new perspective, some issues being examined with the use of new material. Although not intended as a conventional biography, the book retains several characteristics of the form, in that it is a 'career-study', part thematic, part chronological. Philip IV is examined also in relation to the political writing of the age, and to his court and capital in Madrid.
