España y los españoles de hoy: Historia, sociedad y cultura takes a comprehensive approach to the study of Spanish culture by looking at history, society and culture with a primary emphasis on the 20th and 21st centuries. Divided into three parts, the first section looks to the 20th century to see how it shaped Spain today. It also includes an in-depth focus on modern Spanish society: family, birth rate, immigration, youth, customs, and cultural identity. It ends with an examination of culture in Spain, especially the arts. With content focused primarily on the past two centuries, students using España y los españoles de hoy receive a much more focused study of modern-day Spanish civilization and culture than they would with other books that provide basic overviews of the past two thousand years in Spain.
España y los españoles de hoy balances history, society and culture, challenging the student at an intellectually advanced level. Appropriate for advanced courses in Spanish civilization and culture, España y los españoles de hoy can also be used in history, and anthropology, and Spanish study abroad programs.
