The Spanish Inquisition by John Edwards

The Spanish Inquisition by John Edwards is an excellent brief history of this religious and legal entity. The text itself is pretty short coming in at less than 50,000 words but it does provide a nice summary of the background as well as the workings of the Inquisition. Edwards also tries to dispel some of the mythical stories that have grown up around it. There are a lot of pictures and illustrations. No endnotes but a bibliography which can be used for further reading.

Highly recommended!

Is available through Abebooks.
