This book provides a clear and comprehensive account of those aspects of Andalusia which through the centuries have created its essential character. The Moorish influence evident in such architectural treasures as the Alhambra in Granada, the Great Mosque in Cordoba, and the Moorish palaces of the Alcazar in Seville is considered in detail. Other important topics include the origin and development of flamenco, the ancient sources of the bullfight and its evolution in modern times, the dramatic nature of the religious processions of Holy Week, and the political events which have affected the region in the twentieth century, from the Civil War through the subsequent Franco dictatorship to the transition to democracy in more recent times.
