Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the late John A. Crow's classic study of the cultural history of Spain and its people, which he last updated in 1985 but which seems as fresh and pertinent as when he first wrote it. Crow devoted a lifetime to Hispanic studies and here provides a historical interpretation of Spanish civilization from its earliest beginnings to the present. The scope of this study is remarkable and includes chapters on Roman Spain, the Jews in Spain, the Moors, life in medieval towns, and the Golden Age of Spain, plus a view of Franco's legacy.

About the Author

John A. Crow was Professor Emeritus of Spanish at the University of California, Los Angeles. He was also author of The Epic of Latin America (fourth edition, California, 1992).
