How did England go from a position of inferiority to the powerful Spanish empire to achieve global pre-eminence?

In this important work, Alison Games explores the period when England challenged dominion over the American continents, established new long-distance trade routes in the eastern Mediterranean and the East Indies, and emerged in the 17th century as an empire to reckon with.
