About this product
- DescriptionFrom Roman times to the present day, Spain has occupied a significant role in the evolution of our Western world. This book highlights the table trends, intellectual and social, of each particular era in its history. The imposition of Roman rule created the tion of Hispania as a single entity. Chapters on the Visigoth monarchy, Moorish Spain, the establishment, an empire, the eighteenth-century Enlightenment, all chart the political and ecomic development of Spain, but also emphasize the extraordinary and diverse artistic and literary achievements of the Spanish people within this one country at these different times. Moving on to the nineteenth century, we read of the rise of liberalism, and of its fall, which ushered in a period of disarray leading to the Civil War and authoritarian rule. Today Spain is a fully integrated and enthusiastic member of the European community.
