Death & Money in the Afternoon: A History of the Spanish Bullfight
Adrian Shubert. Bullfighting has long been perceived as an antiquated, barbarous legacy from Spain’s medieval past. In fact, many in Spain have accepted the corrida as the embodiment of Spain’s rejection of the modern world. The modern bullfight did not emerge until the early 18th century & was far from being an archaic remnant of the past -- it was a precursor of the 20th century mass leisure industry. Shubert analyzes the business of the sport -- replete with promoters, agents, journalists, & well-paid bullfighters who were exploited to endorse products -- & explores the bullfighter’s world: their social & geographic origins, careers, & social status. Illustrated.
