Vibrantly reveals the startling variety of landscape, people, and culture that make up Spain today.
Considering the radical changes in the country over the last quarter of the 20th century, Stanton (Spanish and Italian, U. of Kentucky) is compelled to speak of old and new Spain and Spaniards. He examines such cultural features as religion, customs, media, cinema, literature, and the performing and visual arts. He includes a chronology and a glossary without pronunciation guides.
