La Légende noire de l'Espagne by Joseph Pérez( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in Spanish and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En esta obra, Joseph Pérez, uno de los hispanistas más prestigiosos y de más reconocida trayectoria, plantea un análisis riguroso sobre el origen y motivación de la Leyenda Negra, su relación con los hechos probados por la historiografía más reciente, dentro y fuera de España, y la suerte que han corrido la Leyenda, y sus ecos, hasta nuestros días. El resultado es un libro de amena y apasionante lectura, que, como los buenos ensayos históricos, nos ayuda a leer de nuevo la historia de España. ¿Cómo y porqué nació la Leyenda Negra? ¿Qué base tenían las críticas que contenía hacia España y hacia la Casa de Austria? ¿Hasta que punto esta defendió intereses de España o sus propios intereses dinásticos? Pérez identifica un precedente de la Leyenda en la reacción que generó a finales de la Edad Media, sobre todo en Italia, la expansión de la Corona de Aragón por el Mediterráneo. Una reacción, ante todo, a la expansión, al éxito y también a los excesos, de la potencia extranjera. A partir de la Apología de Guillermo de Orange, el documento que encarnó el nacimiento de la Leyenda como tal, Joseph Pérez analiza con detalle y objetividad cada uno de los elementos de la Leyenda: los ataques a Felipe II, a la Inquisición española y a la conquista de América, y establece el grado de fundamento o de exageración y deformación interesada que hay en cada uno de ellos. Al mismo tiempo, sitúa en el contexto adecuado todas estas cuestiones, comparándolas con episodios similares (represiones, guerras de religión, colonizaciones...) que tuvieron lugar por parte de otras potencias, coetáneas o posteriores. En palabras del editor francés de esta obra, la principal conclusión de este análisis es el sorprendente vigor que ciertos aspectos de la Leyenda siguen teniendo aún hoy entre algunas élites que prefieren ignorar la historiografía más rigurosa: España no fue ni peor ni mejor que las otras potencias europeas

8 editions published between 1978 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The aim of this book is to explore the theoretical possibility and the social function of a unified approach to every phenomenon of signification and/or communication. Such an approach should take the form of a general semiotic theory, able to explain every case of sign-function in terms of underlying systems of elements mutually correlated by one or more codes."--P. 3
