Synopsis

Spain by Zoran Pavlovic, Reuel Hanks

Thanks to its strategic location on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, the Kingdom of Spain has long been a place where various cultures and religions have come together. Before the Greeks established trading colonies along Spain's eastern coast during the 8th century BCE, the Basques, Iberians, and Celts were firmly entrenched in the region. The Romans, who ruled Spain from the 2nd century BCE until the 5th century CE, gave the country its name--Hispana--and also brought Christianity and the Latin language to Iberia. Three centuries later, the Moors gained control of Spain and brought their literature, music, art, and architecture. By the late 15th century, Christian rule was restored to Spain after Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castille captured the Muslim stronghold of Granada and united the country for the first time in its history. Spain remains an important force in current affairs, and this title, featuring clear, up-to-date information and eye-catching, full-colour design, delves into this captivating nation's eclectic history and heritage.
