9780060109196: Spain: The Root and the Flower - An Interpretation of Spain and the Spanish People

John A. Crow updates and expands his classic study of the cultural history of Spain and its people. The scope of this richly textured book is remarkable and includes chapters on Roman Spain, the Jews in Spain, the Moors, life in medieval towns, the Golden Age of Spain, and other epochs in Spanish history. In addition, Crow extensively updates later chapters to reflect changing events in the last ten years in Spain, and he expands his chapter on "Franco's Legacy."

About the Author:

John A. Crow was Professor Emeritus of Spanish at the University of California, Los Angeles. He was also author of The Epic of Latin America (fourth edition, California, 1992).

Review:

"The distinctive features of the book are indeed the author's deep insight into the mores of the country . . . and his enthusiasm for the brilliance of Spain's culture. . . The essential political facts are all there, but far more important and meaningful . . . is the environmental lore that Dr. Crow has gleaned from his many journeys since he first went to Spain in 1928." --"Times Literary Supplement
