Summary

Summary

Spain's unique character is partially determined by its geography -- it shares only 300 miles of border with the rest of the European continent. A country of varied terrain and ways of life, its development was dependent on its prior Roman and European rulers who brought religions and architecture both great and diverse. The book discusses the ideals represented by Don Quixote and Don Juan, the changing role of women, and the importance of religion. Lively chapters on music, art, and the festivals and feasts of the people contribute to a student's understanding of this dynamic nation.
