In this up-to-date and engaging tour of Spain through the ages, one of the world's leading authorities on the history of Spain, Sir Raymond Carr, provides an authoritative overview of a country that has played a vital role in the history of the Western world.

He tells of prehistoric Spain and of the imposition of Roman rule, which created the idea of Hispania as a single entity. There are knowledgeable discussions of the Visigoth monarchy, Moorish Spain, the establishment of an empire, and the eighteenth-century Enlightenment. Carr examines not only the political and economic development of Spain, but also the extraordinary artistic and literary achievements of the Spanish people. He charts the rise and fall of liberalism in the nineteenth century, and the subsequent period of political instability culminating in the Civil War and authoritarian rule. The book concludes with a look at modern Spain as a fully integrated and enthusiastic member of the European community.

Attractively illustrated throughout, Spain: A History is the best historical account of Spain currently available for general readers.

Although I have only read the later chapters on more recent history, I have found that these chapters give a useful overview of the time period. However, it really is just an overview so I would not recommend the book for readers hoping for more depth on a particular period in history.

One of the traditional weaknesses of the teaching of history in Great Britain was its concentration on the British Isles. Countries like Spain were only mentioned when they were in conflict with Great Britain and often in a disparaging manner. During the Anglo-Spanish war of 1585 to 1604 Francis Drake singed the King of Spain’s beard, destroyed most of the Spanish fleet in a series of actions and completed his game of bowls on Plymouth Hoe before scattering the Spanish Armada. This collection of essays by nine academics traces the history of Spain from prehistoric times to the early twenty-first century and corrects many historical myths.
