About the Author
Like other titles in the various historical dictionary series, this one begins with a chronology (1469-April 27, 2017), a list of abbreviations and acronyms, and a general introduction that covers the land and people, the period of Spanish empire (1479-1898), the Spanish Civil War, the period of democracy building, and globalization, among many other things. As expected, the entries (approximately 700) are listed in an A to Z format; they may contain bold-face cross-references and see references. Entries vary in length from a short paragraph to many pages—the Franco Regime entry comprises nearly ten pages. For those wanting to do further reading and research, there is a nearly eighty-page bibliography divided by topic so users can jump, for example, to works on Basque nationalism. The last edition of this book was published nearly a decade ago. This updated version incorporates vital political, economic, and other changes in Spain over the last ten years and is recommended for public and academic libraries.
