Background reading

#1
Those intending to walk the camino who have no previous experience of Spain would be well advised to read The New Spaniards, by John Hooper (Second Edition) published by Penguin in 2006.
Extremely well written, very honest and quite revealing.
You can skip the boring bits about the Spanish economy (economists will find it fascinating) and politics if you like (although the complexities of Spanish politics have a fascination in themselves).
This is Spain, warts and all. How things have changed since Franco, and what you can expect to encounter today.
As the blurb on the back cover says, this is "the essential guide to understanding 21st century Spain, a land of paradox, progress and social change."
He even mentions the camino.
Buen camino, caminantes.
