9780131922198: España y los españoles de hoy: Historia, sociedad y cultura

España y los españoles de hoy: Historia, sociedad y cultura takes a comprehensive approach to the study of Spanish culture by looking at history, society and culture with a primary emphasis on the 20th and 21st centuries.  Divided into three parts, the first section looks to the 20th century to see how it shaped Spain today.  It also includes an in-depth focus on modern Spanish society: family, birth rate, immigration, youth, customs, and cultural identity.  It ends with an examination of culture in Spain, especially the arts. With content focused primarily on the past two centuries, students using España y los españoles de hoy receive a much more focused study of modern-day Spanish civilization and culture than they would with other books that provide basic overviews of the past two thousand years in Spain.

 

España y los españoles de hoy balances history, society and culture, challenging the student at an intellectually advanced level. Appropriate for advanced courses in Spanish civilization and culture, España y los españoles de hoy can also be used in history, and anthropology, and Spanish study abroad programs.

From the Back Cover:

España y los españoles de hoy: historia, sociedad y cultura  es un texto que presenta la riqueza y complejidad de la civilización y cultura española y la hace accesible a los estudantes de tercer y cuarto año a través de tres partes integradas.

 

Historia
Los capítulos del uno al cinco están organizados de forma cronológica, desde la crisis del 98, hasta la España actual (2007), creando un marco histórico que abarca los movimientos políticos, ideológicos y sociales característicos del siglo XX y XXI.

 

Sociedad
Los capítulos del seis al diez se enfocan en la sociedad española contemporánea, enfrentando cuestiones de identidad y la evolución social a través de una serie de temas que afectan a la sociedad, el desarollo y los desafíos de la vida moderna.

 

Cultura
Los restantes del once al catorce abarcan la producción cultural: pintura y arquitectura, música y baile, cine y televisión y teatro y radio. Se estudian las contribuciones españolas, tanto históricas como contemporáneas de la cultura popular en todas sus manifestaciones.
