Abstract

With this textbook, Michael Ugarte and Kathleen McNerney offer a new and revised fifth edition of the late Francisco Ugarte's well-known and much-used Espa?a y su civilizaci?n, first published in 1952. In keeping with the elder Ugarte's original goal of presenting an overview of "the fundamental aspects of Spain's culture" (xi), the younger Ugarte and McNerney also employ "a historical perspective to explore the great developments in fine arts: literature, visual arts, music" (xi). That is, like the original and other previous versions, this new edition combines Spanish history and important aspects of so-called "large-C" culture in a format accessible to third-year-college-level students.
