Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This outstanding introduction to Spanish history will attract general readers, historians, and travelers to Spain. Essential.” Choice
"[A] well-written and engaging tour of Spanish history.” Sixteenth Century Journal
“Narrator Luis Soto recounts the history of Spain in a strong British-accented voice, his manner bright, brisk, and congenial. His Spanish is of native-speaker quality, although his accurate Castilian pronunciation, in which ‘s’ sounds like ‘th,’ may give some listeners difficulty in recognizing people and place names. Soto [is] intelligent and always correct in intonation and emphasis…A professional performance and, overall, an interesting and informative history.” AudioFile
