Spanish History Since 1808 by Adrian Shubert

Book Description

The history of Spain has been revitalized since the death of Franco in 1975 and the restoration of democracy. Taking advantage of unprecedented access to archives, historians have explored long-standing issues more fully as well as bringing new questions to bear, adopting new methodologies, and developing new interpretations. The traditional view of Spain as somehow beyond the orbit of other European countries is in retreat and it is part of the purpose of the present volume to mark this reintegration of Spanish history into the history of western Europe as a whole. Leading Spanish scholars - whose work is rarely available to an anglophone audience - have combined with North American and British historians to produce a major re-evaluation of modern Spanish history, the first for some 20 years. Exploring the main issues in social, economic, cultural, and political history, within a clear chronological framework, 'Spanish History since 1808' reflects the liveliness and diversity of the field and provides points of entry to key issues for students and scholars alike.

Death and Money in the Afternoon by Adrian Shubert Death and Money in the Afternoon, Paperback (December 2000)

In his interpretation of bullfighting, the author of this text maintains that the view of the sport as Spain's rejection of the modern world is both the product of myth and a complete misunderstanding of the real roots of the contemporary bullfight.
