Show Summary Details


This chapter addresses the following issues: What did it mean to be ‘Spanish’ to those people who fought, killed and died while invoking that name? In other words, what did it mean to those people who believed in an identity that, to judge by their behaviour, they considered superior to their individual lives and interests? It examines the political and cultural factors that contributed to the creation of this identity in earlier centuries.
