Overview

CIVILIZACIÓN Y CULTURA presents a variety of topics related to Hispanic culture. The approach in this reader is thematic rather than purely historical, and the topics offer insights into Hispanic culture as well as interest to students. The exercises are designed to reinforce the development of reading, writing, and speaking skills, to build vocabulary, and to stimulate class discussion.
