An unforgettable journey through the history of Spain across time and world history. It will take us from the first hominids all the way to 2017, and will tell us this story for the first time from the key moments in history when Spain changed the course of the world and the world changed the destiny of Spain. This rich crossing of civilizations and influences through the centuries has defined Spain and its territories.
Through 127 singular episodes centered around a date, more than one hundred specialists––and hence many pairs of eyes––offer the grandiose tale of the country’s history, and tell every episode as if it were an adventure, uncovering little-known details and offering a global perspective. Because the fate of a country can’t be explained apart from the world it helps compose.
A book that reexamines the history of Spain with a new gaze, that takes us through the most singular corners of the memory of a community and draws out its connections and relationships with universal history.
