A PRIZE-WINNING British Hispanist has published a new book on the challenges he has faced tracing Spanish history.

History in the Making by John H. Elliott describes the difficulties of writing about a country which is not one’s own, the changes in attitudes to history since the 1950s and the impact of technology on researching the past.

Elliott, 82, has written several books including Imperial Spain: 1469-1716 – for history students.
