Spanish cultural studies are still in their infancy and to date, there has been little interdisciplinary work. Spanish Cultural Studies: An Introduction maps out the new terrain, taking into account the major changes which have been taking place in the context of Spanish Studies in both secondary and higher education. The focus is now upon a broader range of cultural forms, hence this book adopts an interdisciplinary approach in its wide-ranging study of twentieth-century Spanish culture and society, emphasizing recent and contemporary developments. This single volume gives the English-speaking reader unprecedented access to the latest research and key debates on twentieth-century Spanish culture. All the essays draw on international expertise across a range of specialisms, and include suggestions for further reading. While the book's innovative and challenging content will recommend it to Hispanists, its European perspective and the availability of quotations in translation make it a crucial volume for comparative work in cultural studies. Its format - editorial introductions, glossary, chronology and copious illustrations - also ensures accessibility to the reader who is new to the field. The volume will be essential reading for anyone interested in modern and contemporary Spanish society and its culture. This book is intended for undergraduate students (all levels) of Spanish studies. All students of spanish culture, language and literature; teachers/tutors of Spanish, European studies, cultural studies, and sociology.

Review:

`I look forward to using this text; a book dealing so comprehensively with such a wide range of issues is well overdue.'
Cathy Warshall, Staffordshire University

`Because of the scope and quality of its approach this is a textbook which lays the foundations for Spanish Cultural Studies ... The volume is both informative and accessible and will become a key reference work for a large spectrum of curricular disciplines and comparative courses.'
Tesserae

`Because of the scope and quality of its approach this is a textbook which lays the foundations for Spanish Cultural Stuies and marks the entry of this discipline into a movement within the humanities long established in other academic departments and especially dominant in Latin-American
studies. The volume is both informative and accessible and will become a key reference work for a large spectrum of curricular disciplines and comparative courses.'
Xon De Ros, King's College, London, Tesserae 2 (1996)
