I would still recommend James Michener's 1968 book Iberia for a view into the soul of Spain (as different as Franco's impoverished country was from today's democracy suffering from Eurozone success); and Maria Rosa Menocal's The Ornament of the World to connect the briefly glorious Cordoba caliphate and the 600-year Iberian convivencia of Muslims, Jews and Christians to the Spain that followed Ferdinand's and Isabella's fateful decision to establish an exclusivist and, eventually, spiritually (as wells as economically) poorer nation.
