The rich cultural and political life of Spain has emerged from its complex history, from the diversity of its peoples, and from continual contact with outside influences. This book traces that history from prehistoric times to the present, focusing particularly on culture, society, politics, and personalities. Written in an engaging style, it introduces readers to the key themes that have shaped Spain's history and culture. These include its varied landscapes and climates; the impact of waves of diverse human migrations; the importance of its location as a bridge between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean and Europe and Africa; and religion, particularly militant Catholic Christianity and its centuries of conflict with Islam and Protestantism, as well as debates over the place of the Church in modern Spain. Illustrations, maps, and a guide to further reading, major cultural figures, and places to see, make the history of this fascinating country come alive.

Yojin
In a departure from usual practice,Cambridge University Press has approached two North American history experts to compose this concise history reader and the result is a beautifully written piece of history for this most complex of European nations.In a brief 308 pages,the early inhabitants of Spain are identified, notably the Romans and Visigoths and their impacts are identified. Then we are treated to thorough analysis of the widespread Islamic impact with a description of all the political and social trends of that interesting time. With great clarity,the authors make sense of Spain's rise to a global power and then its eventual decline. With broad brush strokes,their last chapter captures the great social changes that took place after General Franco and the halting steps to a modern democracy. In this soft-bound edition,this history of Spain is beautifully crafted and is highly recommended.

We went to Spain for a trip and I got interested in the history. I wanted something that wasn't so high level that all the detail was washed out, but not so terribly deep that the level of trivia involved became tedious. I thought this one was just right. Spain is such an interesting place and it's history has impacted the world deeply. But in the U.S. we don't really learn much about it in our normal history classes.
Laizel
A historical profound work about Spain and its history, moreover, the history of the Jewish population that was inhabiting Spain for centuries and was expelled one day in the year 1492, aka the inquisition of the Jews by the Roman Catholic church, or the Spanish Inquisition in short
Huston
Not what I was hoping. The book is way to general and it doesn't go very deeply into very important aspects events in Spanish history. It spends too much time talking about how the royalty lived. It skips most of events regarding the Moors and the reconquest.
Simple
I am currently still reading this. It is so interesting. So much information. It is well written,too. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in history, Spain, or traveling to Spain. 5 Stars.
Rigiot
Good overview of the complex history of Spain. At times seems to be overly chronological in its treatment. Overall I recommend the book as a good introduction.
Tejar
This is a very good overview of Spanish history. Plenty of detail but not difficult to read. I recommend this book.
I am planning a trip to Spain and realized I knew very little about the history of Spain except for Ferdinand and Isabella supporting Columbus. This excellent little book gave me an overview of the rise and fall of Spain and the modern emergence of Spain as an important part of the EU. I am now even more eagerly anticipating my trip.
