Reviews

“Paulson and Alvarez-Detrell’s work reminds us of the key importance of women in political, cultural, artistic, and literary history. Whether we read or write historiography or historical fiction, women like Anne of Austria are crucial for the story/history that we tell ourselves and our progeny.” – Prof. Maria Galli Stampino, University of Miami
