(p.1) Introduction
The Anxiety of Sameness In Early Modern Spain

Christina H. Lee

Manchester University Press

In the “Introduction,” Lee provides the theoretical framework of her book, which is founded on the notion that all textual production—literary and documentary—are valid in understanding the early modern Spanish experience. She then explains the historical context for understanding the pervasive desire of New Christians and lowborns to “pass” for dominant members of society and proposes that dominant’s anxiety of sameness becomes a focal point in the construction of the other. She then summaries of the sections that encompass the book.
