Spanish cultural studies are still in their infancy and to date there has been little interdisciplinary work. Spanish Cultural Studies: An Introduction maps out the new terrain, taking into account the major changes which have been taking place in the context of Spanish Studies in both secondary and higher education. The focus is now upon a broader range of cultural forms, so this book adopts an interdisciplinary approach in its wide-ranging study of twentieth-century Spanish culture and society, emphasizing recent and contemporary developments.

Review:

The authors include both established and young academics and the essays are readable and informative./Forum for Modern Language Studies 35 : 4 1999

a challenge to Hispanists to broaden our perspectives and a practical aid in our everyday teaching and research ... a major contribution to resources for the study of twentieth-century Spain ... The editors are to be complimented on their thoughtful use of illustrations ... a brilliantly-conceived and well-executed volume which will no doubt be indispensable to all students, teachers and enthusiasts of Spanish culture. (Kathryn Crameri, JHR 4 (1995-1996))

I look forward to using this text; a book dealing so comprehensively with such a wide range of issues is well overdue. (Cathy Warshall, Staffordshire University)

Because of the scope and quality of its approach this is a textbook which lays the foundations for Spanish Cultural Studies ... The volume is both informative and accessible and will become a key reference work for a large spectrum of curricular disciplines and comparative courses. (Tesserae)

Because of the scope and quality of its approach this is a textbook which lays the foundations for Spanish Cultural Stuies and marks the entry of this discipline into a movement within the humanities long established in other academic departments and especially dominant in Latin-American studies. The volume is both informative and accessible and will become a key reference work for a large spectrum of curricular disciplines and comparative courses. (Xon De Ros, King's College, London, Tesserae 2 (1996))

the breadth of the fields and topics covered is to be applauded, for the book is in fact tightly structured ... The need for brevity in each article has forced a concise style upon the authors who have pared down and concentrated their material, which makes for a stimulating read. The book is enlivened by apt illustrations with useful explanatory captions, a good glossary and politico-cultural chronology. Altogether a must for the Reading List. (Monica Threlfall, Loughborough University, Journal of Area Studies 9: 1996)

About the Author:

Helen Graham has taken early retirement from lecturing in psychology at Keele University where she developed research interest in the psychology of health and healing and complementary therapies. She is now concentrating on her writing. Her most recent books are 'Make Stress Work For You' and 'Soul Medicine', both published by Newleaf.
