Al hilo del tiempo

Al hilo del tiempo recoge los artículos publicados por el autor en los últimos treinta años, estructurados en torno a sus dos principales preocupaciones historiográficas: las Cortes, en especial las del Reino de Valencia, y la burocracia de la España Imperial. La primera parte sitúa las Cortes valencianas en el contexto de la península ibérica y de los parlamentos europeos, y se explican los momentos y circunstancias que llevaron al País Valenciano a aceptar la propuesta de la Unión de Armas del Conde Duque de Olivares en las Cortes de 1626. La segunda parte analiza la función de los colegios mayores españoles como instituciones de mecenazgo para la educación de las elites burocráticas del imperio español y el papel que el Colegio español de Bolonia (Italia) juega en esa dinámica. En la parte final se apuntan temas poco conocidos de una España que todavía conservaba un imperio, como los intentos frustrados de crear una colonia penal española y los esfuerzos de Rafael Altamira en la creación del «americanismo» español. El autor nos invita, por último, a repensar, en base a la experiencia del pasado, la relación de los dos países ibéricos: España y Portugal.
