This book is designed as a second- or third-year college text that presents the civilization of Spain in all its manifestations: history, literature, the arts, and popular culture. In this revision, all important cultural and historical information from previous editions has been retained, and new information about modern-day political organizations and culture has been added. With increased emphasis on the regional diversity of Spain and improved coverage of the contributions of women, this text introduces students to Spanish civilizations and culture.

Francisco Ugarte Cristóbal (1910-1969) immigrated to the United States from Madrid in 1946. Before arriving in the United States, he was in charge of the U.S. embassy in Spain during the Spanish Civil War when the continuation of diplomatic relations between Spain and the U.S. was uncertain. He began his teaching career as an instructor of Spanish at Dartmouth College in 1947, rose through the ranks at Dartmouth, and was ultimately promoted to full professor. He wrote several widely used textbooks for students of Spanish language, literature, and civilization, among which are Beginning Spanish, Gramática española de repaso, Panorama de la civilización española, and the first edition of this book, España y su civilización (1952).
Michael Ugarte is a professor of Spanish at the University of Missouri-Columbia. He is the author of numerous studies on the modern literature of Spain, including a book on the novels of Juan Gotisolo, Trilogy of Treason. As a Guggenheim fellow, he completed a book on Spanish Civil War exile literature, Shifting Ground, and, more recently, Madrid 1900. His father, Francisco Ugarte, original author of España y su civilización, found a new home in New Hampshire after the turmoil and hardship resulting from the Spanish Civil War.
