Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the mysterious cave drawings at Altamira to the explosive graffiti on the walls of East Los Angeles, images in Spain and the Americas speak to us of the astonishing richness and vitality of Spanish culture. Now Fuentes, an internationally renowned novelist and diplomat, provides a unique history of the forces that have created this remarkable culture. 157 illustrations.

Synopsis:

As the Los Angeles Times said: "Drawing expertly on five centuries of the cultural history of Europe and the Americas, Fuentes seeks to capture the spirit of the new, vibrant, and enduring civilization [in the New World] that began in Spain." Fuentes's singular success in this remarkable endeavor has made the book a classic in its field. (A Mariner Reissue).

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 366-384) and index.
