Unputdownable . . . A must for anyone . . . who wants to know what Spain is really like. (New Statesman, London)

Hooper . . . not only knows where Spain has been in recent decades and centuries, but he also has an impressively authoritative view of where exactly it is today and where it is headed. (The Washington Post)
