The diplomacy of the Spanish Monarchy a field traditionally restricted to political history- has recently aroused great interest on the part of specialists in the study os court society and of fine art. During the seventeenth century, governors, viceroys, ambassadors and cardinals acted not only as intermediaries for the artistic interests of the king of Spain, but also sought to emulate their own right. Research into the relationship between art and diplomacy has shown that, together with the artists themselves, the people who commissioned, collected, sold, and exchanged works of art played a fundamental role in the history of cultural expression. From their position of wealth and power they became arbiters of taste and fashion, and their intervention would be central to the process by which the work of certain artists and schools became sought after and disseminated across Europe

Students in advanced Spanish courses come from many backgrounds, but they share a desire to use the language. Translation (traduccion), as used in En otras palabras, is an activity that combines the intellectual with the practical: in order to produce an acceptable translation, students must focus their attention on lexical and grammatical detail. This challenging textbook combines incisive grammar explanation, relevant lexical information, and a wide variety of translation texts and exercises. translated into English, and English into Spanish. Translating into English requires students to understand every detail of the Spanish text, and then decide how these details might best be expressed in English. Translating into Spanish requires students to recognize how Spanish structures and words do-and do not-parallel those of English. Both activities provide advanced students of Spanish with an invigorating linguistic workout, and serve as an effective introduction to the practice of translation.
