Raymond Carr, a British historian, Prince of Asturias Award winner and one of the best contemporary Hispanists, presents an overview of the political, economic, social and cultural factors that have shaped the history of Spain in the last two thousand years. It also tells us about Spanish artistic and literary achievements throughout history.
From the Romans who created the notion of Hispania as a unique entity, passing through Visigoths, Arabs, Renaissance, Enlightenment, until the ninetieth and twentieth centuries with the civil war and the dictatorship, it shows how each episode influenced its development as a nation.
It is a work of great scientific rigor that offers us a clear and synthetic vision of each historical period. In loved with this country, he set himself the task of writing about it, since he disagreed with the image that other historians had offered.
It breaks with the idea of Hispanicism and its romantic vision, so far from reality. One of his greatest achievements was to place the history of Spain within Europe, as a full country.
