Overview

An engaging reader, CULTURAS DE ESPAÑA, 2e offers a wealth of authentic texts and visual materials and encourages learners to think critically about the cultures of Spain. While other books present Spanish civilization as a neutral recounting of historical facts, events, and data, CULTURAS DE ESPAÑA, 2e emphasizes that history, culture, and civilization are concepts under constant construction. Its intriguing conceptual focus brings to life the history and everyday experiences that shape national identity. Prior knowledge in the target language is required.
