“An excellent resource for students of Spanish film and/or contemporary Spanish culture. Summing Up: Highly recommended.” (Choice Reviews, May 2009)

–Paul Julian Smith, University of Cambridge

"This splendid volume is an insightful blend of essays on cultural history and thought-provoking analyses of key scenes from over twenty films. It offers readers a sophisticated engagement with the critical debates that have shaped a history of Spanish cinema"
