Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0563361948, Hardcover)Since Franco's death, Spain has managed the considerable achievement of a peaceful transition from dictatorship to democracy. Spaniards are recovering a tradition of tolerance lost in 1492, when Granada, the country's last Moorish enclave, fell to the Christians. Now there is an obsession with making up for lost time, a determination to figure prominently on the map of the contemporary world. Published to accompany a BBC Television series, this book provides a portrait of the landscapes, history, people and problems of Spain, developing such themes as army and Church resistance to the new liberalism, women's role in Spain today, and the strange case of the Basques.
