Espantilde;a y los espantilde;oles de hoy: Historia, sociedad y culturatakes a comprehensive approach to the study of Spanish culture by looking at history, society and culture with a primary emphasis on the 20th and 21st centuries. Divided into three parts, the first section looks to the 20 th century to see how it shaped Spain today. It also includes an in-depth focus on modern Spanish society: family, birth rate, immigration, youth, customs, and cultural identity. It ends with an examination of culture in Spain, especially the arts. With content focused primarily on the past two centuries, students usingEspantilde;a y los espantilde;oles de hoyreceive a much more focused study of modern-day Spanish civilization and culture than they would with other books that provide basic overviews of the past two thousand years in Spain. Espantilde;a y los espantilde;oles de hoy balances history, society and culture, challenging the student at an intellectually advanced level. Appropriate for advanced courses in Spanish civilization and culture,Espantilde;a y los espantilde;oles de hoycan also be used in history, and anthropology, and Spanish study abroad programs.
