Spain in the Nineteenth Century : New Essays on Experiences of Culture and Society Hardback
Edited by Andrew Ginger, Geraldine Lawless
Part of the Interventions: Rethinking the Nineteenth Century series
The nineteenth-century Hispanic world was shattered to its core by war, civil war, and revolution.
At the same time, it confronted a new period of European and North-American expansion and development.
In these essays, authors explore major, dynamic ways that people in Spain envisaged how they would adapt and change, or simply continue as they were.
Each chapter title begins with the words "How to...", and examines the ways in which Spaniards conceived or undertook major activities that shaped their lives.
These range from telling the time to being a man. Adaptability, paradox, and inconsistency come to the fore in many of the essays.
We find before us a human quest for opportunity and survival in a complex and changing world.
This wide-ranging book contains chapters by leading scholars from the United States, United Kingdom, and Spain. -- .
