The aim is to introduce readers to current theoretical debates in a range of disciplines, as well as to inform them about specific areas of twentieth-century Spanish culture.

Review from other book by this author 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
`Labanyi...does not rest on the laurels of her earlier publications. Instead, she probes further into the field of cultural studies.' Modernism/Modernity
`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
