Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE PREVIOUS EDITION: "The distinctive features of the book are indeed the author's deep insight into the mores of the country, the fundamental psychology of the Spanish people as shared by geography and history, and his enthusiasm for the brilliance of Spain's culture, which has at all times dwarfed the political ephemera. The essential political facts are all there, but far more important and meaningful--to him and to us--is the environmental lore that Dr. Crow has gleaned from his many journeys since he first went to Spain in 1928: wisdom and understanding which he now distills for us in a lively idiom that is in the best tradition of humane Hispanists."--"Times Literary Supplement
