Spain is a complex country. Beyond the stereotypes of sangria and bullfighting lies a cultured mosaic of regions, languages and customs. "Speak the Culture: Spain" picks at the surface to uncover the key events, themes and people that have shaped the nation, from green Galicia to dusty Andalucia.From the lingering Moorish flavours of Spain's Middle Ages to the awful rupture of modern Civil War, the turning points of Spanish history are made flesh, revealed alongside cultural icons like Miguel de Cervantes, Pablo Picasso and Pedro Almodovar. "Speak the Culture: Spain" gives you the essentials on each figure and their achievements."Speak the Culture: Spain" also explores the culture of everyday Spanish life - from politics to wine, sport to folk music - building an engaging, superbly designed insight into what it means to be Spanish in the 21st century. By the time you get there you'll know exactly what makes the locals tick.
