The Regions of Spain: A Reference Guide to History and Culture
This is the first complete reference book on Spanish history, life, and culture from prehistory to 1994 and the only book on Spain in English or Spanish that is organized by region and province. It is designed to assist students and interested readers in identifying and understanding regional and provincial history, economy, literature, art, music, social customs and cultural life, historic sites, and provincial cuisine (recipes included). Organized into entries on the 18 regions and subdivided into the 50 provinces, this one-stop reference makes gathering information on each region and province easy. A map of each region and photos accompany the text.
