Disinherited: Exile and the Making of Spanish Culture 1492-1975
Henry Kamen (au)
Spain has for several centuries made a huge contribution to Europe’s culture, in music, painting, buildings, and history. But much of this was the achievement of a very specific group: the Spanish in exile. Since the destruction of the last Muslim territories in Granada in 1492, Spain has expelled wave after wave of its citizens in a brutal attempt to create religious and social conformity. Muslims, Jews, Protestants, Liberals, Socialists, and Communists were all driven abroad at different times, and consequently what we think of as Spanish culture was substantially their invention. “Spain’s history has created a “virtual” culture imagined by people often thousands of miles from home -- but whose impact on the world has been incalculable.”
