Book description

About the Book

Books about the History of Spain discuss the 700 year period of Muslim rule until the Reconquista returned Christian rule in the late 15th century. Soon afterwards the discoveries of Columbus (1492) in the New World ushered in a Golden Age of the Spanish Empire. Spain was conquered by Napoleon, and the 1936-39 Spanish Civil War resulted in subsequent dictatorship of General Franco, which lasted until 1975. Portugal's power in the New World grew in parallel with Spain's, but was gradually denuded. In 1926 a military coup established a dictatorship that continued until 1974. Titles include: A Short History of Spain, A Letter Written on October 4, 1589 by Captain Cuellar of the Spanish Armada to His Majesty King Philip II, The Martyrs of the Spanish Inquisition, The viceroy of New Spain and Philip II of Spain.

Also in this Book

Continental Europe has a long standing drama tradition, including Austrian, Italian and French opera, and plays dating from the German Romanticism of the 19th century, and French Romanticism of the same period. Some examples of European drama include: Aida, La Sonnambula, Die Verkaufte Braut, Don Carlos, Elektra, La Bohème, Lakmé, Mary Stuart, "Salome", The Blue Bird, Véronique, The Flying Dutchman, A Doll's House and Der Snob.

And in this Book

Spain and Portugal are located on the Iberian Peninsula. The Pyrenees mountains are located on the northeast edge of the peninsula where it connects with the rest of the European continent. Spain and Portugal both have a long coastline that stretches from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic. There are two dominant climate types in the region, being the Atlantic coastal climate that results in cool summers, and the Mediterranean climate. Gibraltar is located on the southernmost tip of the Iberian Peninsula. The region has a long history, featuring Roman times, the Moorish period and Portuguese and Spanish Imperial history.

I don't think I can even do this proper justice in a review other than telling everyone to go out and READ THIS BOOK!
