Encyclopedia of Contemporary Spanish Culture


The 750 A-Z entries in this new work cover the cultural and political developments throughout Spain, including the culture of Catalonia, Galicia and the Basque country. Coverage spans from the end of the Civil War in 1939 to the present day, with emphasis on the changes made since the demise of the Franco dictatorship in 1975.
Entries range from shorter, factual articles to longer overview essays which offer an in-depth treatment of major issues. The encyclopedia defines culture in its broadest sense, and encompasses a wide range of subjects, including entries on:
advertising, Antonio Banderas, dance, detective fiction, education, fashion, Antonio Gaudi, golf, journalism, opera, politics, racism, science, sculpture, stock exchanges, tennis, theatre, urbanization, and much more. This volume provides a comprehensive index, a thematic contents list and annotated suggestions for further reading following the longer articles.
The Encyclopedia of Contemporary Spanish Culture is an invaluable resource for students of Spanish or European studies, professionals working in overseas and "hispanophiles" at all levels.
