Ghost of Spain: Travels through a country’s hidden past

With a two hour a 4 hr a day commute into work, I decided to look for book on Spain and Spanish culture. I found one book in particular that caught my eye, Giles Tremlett’s Ghosts of Spain: Travels through a country’s hidden past.

I have only managed to get through the first few chapters so far, but is proving hard to put down. The book covers historical events in SpainĀ“s past such as the Franco era, it also covers sensitive issues such as ETA and Basque culture.

I am currently reading about how the Bikini saved Spain and its role in making Spain one of the Worlds tourism super powers. I will keep you all posted on the book.
