Summary
"Henry Kamen's The Disinherited is the most significant book on Spain to appear for many years. He creates a picture of a dysfunctional, violent country that, since the destruction of the last Moslem territories in Granada in 1492, has expelled wave after wave of its citizens in a brutal attempt to create religious and social conformity. Moslems, 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 - a creative response to both having no home and to the shock of encountering new worlds."--BOOK JACKET
