Developed for Spanish students at the fifth-semester level or higher, this reader can be used as the main text in a civilization, culture, or reading course. A departure from traditional texts, which present Spanish civilization as a neutral recounting of historical facts, events and data, Culturas de Espana develops the notion that history, culture, and civilization are concepts under constant construction.

    I am currently working on my Master's Degree and this book was chosen for our Spanish History class.... Needless to say, people are beginning to notice that the book should be abandoned. In the first chapter alone, there are two major historical errors... I don't seem to have the space to write them here... but please avoid this book if you intend on learning something 'correct' about history......
