Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

España y los españoles de hoy: historia, sociedad y cultura  es un texto que presenta la riqueza y complejidad de la civilización y cultura española y la hace accesible a los estudantes de tercer y cuarto año a través de tres partes integradas.


Los capítulos del uno al cinco están organizados de forma cronológica, desde la crisis del 98, hasta la España actual (2007), creando un marco histórico que abarca los movimientos políticos, ideológicos y sociales característicos del siglo XX y XXI.


Los capítulos del seis al diez se enfocan en la sociedad española contemporánea, enfrentando cuestiones de identidad y la evolución social a través de una serie de temas que afectan a la sociedad, el desarollo y los desafíos de la vida moderna.


Los restantes del once al catorce abarcan la producción cultural: pintura y arquitectura, música y baile, cine y televisión y teatro y radio. Se estudian las contribuciones españolas, tanto históricas como contemporáneas de la cultura popular en todas sus manifestaciones.

I have never received a textbook that was "new" and looked like this. I'm pretty sure the "paperback" version of the book is actually just a photo copy of the hardcover. You can barely see the pictures because they are so dark and in black in white just like a poorly functioning photocopier would produce. I don't know if this was due to the fact that they shipped it here to Spain after not delivering it to my house after bad whether (without notifying me that they would be doing so) but either way the quality is awful. I have never been so disappointed by Amazon before. This is a very expensive book considering how small it is. I feel like this can't be an authentic version and has to be some sort of knockoff. Not worth more than $15 and I paid EIGHTY NINE. Terrible. Absolutely terrible. As if a student studying abroad doesn't have enough costs to worry about.

Good buy. Not much marking within the text. The covers were solid. No pages were missing. I would recommend this service.
