Pub. Date:
Writer and dancer Ruiz offers a look at the historical roots and diverse influences of Southern Spain's modern culture, particularly highlighting Andalusia's golden age (which was concurrent with the Dark Ages of the rest of Europe) and the pre-inquisition art, architecture, and achievements of Moorish, Jewish, and Gypsy residents. She also discusses the music and dance of Flamenco and Zambra, the individual provinces of the region, Arabisms in Spain's current language, and the best places to see the legacy of Andalusia's rich history. Some b&w photos and illustrations are included. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
