Summary

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 Espantilde;a develops the notion that history, culture, and civilization are concepts under constant construction. Accessible, comprehensive coverage is presented in 13 chapters that illuminate the major historical periods and cultural movements of Spain from prehistoric times to the present day. A chronological, cultural history of Spain unfolds in the first eight chapters of the text, along with the introductory chapter. Each of these chapters opens with a brief overview and a comprehensive timeline that alerts students to themes and unites historical facts and cultural achievements of the time period under study. An engaging, thematic focus in the remaining four thematic chapters explores various aspects of Spain in the 20th and 21st centuries, focusing on the shaping of national identity and including topics such as family and religion, popular culture, and the European community.
