    5.0 out of 5 stars Very Informative 19 Feb 2013
    By Ann Alaniz - Published on
    I've only started this book, but it already has provided great insight to where the Hispanic culture began. Iberians were conquered by the Carthaginians, Romans and Muslims. Judaism, Catholicism and Islam were all introduced to the Iberian people. I can't wait to learn more!
