description -

Iberia, by James A. Michener (original title: Iberia: Spanish Travels and Reflections), is a detailed and illustrated exploration of Spain as it was during the mid-1960s. The author takes a measured, literary view on such subjects as the Moorish occupation, Islam, Catholicism, Francisco Franco and other controversial subjects.


Michener shows to be very prescient, as in his talk of national cycles of rebirth (p. 837): "... And one of these days, (change) will be true even of Russia, and we had better be prepared to admit it .... though (in the United States) we fight against it and blind our eye and conscience to the fact"
