Overview

Civilización y cultura de España provides a comprehensive and accessible chronicle of the history and culture of Spain from the prehistoric era to events and cultural trends of the present time. An interpretive history, it presents the basic political, social, economic, religious, and cultural elements that constitute the structure of Spanish history; it explains those elements that have been decisive in forging the cultural identity of Spain.

Features:

· Chronologies outline major events and people and provide historical perspective.

· End-of-chapter review questions develop critical-thinking skills.

· Historical and cultural issues are clarified throughout.

· Comparative approach, connecting major events in Spain with those of other nations of the European community.
