''This unique work contains a wealth of information on Contemporary Spain, and is highly recommended for academic and large public libraries.'' - American Reference Books Annual 2000 Edition
''This wide-ranging and well-organised work provides an excellent resource to be added to the reference collections of those requiring insights into cultural and political developments within Spain since the end of the Civil War. Everything from fashion to sport to science appears to fall under the term ''culture'' here, and the list of contributors is an impressive one. There are some 750 alphabetically-arranged entries ranging from the shorter factual article to the larger overview essay, the latter featuring annotated suggestions for further reading in both English and Spanish. A thorough and comprehensive system of cross-references, a thematic contents list and a detailed subject index further aid accessibility in this tome, which successfully brings together high quality writing with the very best characteristics of an encyclopedia.'' - British Bulletin of Publications, No 103, October 2000.
