"Spain's place in world civilisation is one of the most fascinating paradoxes in all history. Once the first European superpower; source of culture shared by some 300 million living Spanish speakers; now blossoming democratic nation about to celebrate, with the rest of the world, the quincentenary of its discovery of America – Spain has nevertheless been historically relegated to the margins of cultural influence and achievement." -- from the front fold over panel blurb. In this book 18 different authors look at this paradox. Minor rubbing to the book corners and backstrip edges. Ruffling to the dustwrapper edges with rubbing of the panels. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.
