Profusely illustrated throughout, "Los Judios en la España moderna y contemporanea" is a major study on the status of modern and contemporary Spanish Jewry, and is its author's greatest achievement. Julio Caro Baroja (1914-1995) was a world-renowned anthropologist especially known for his special interest in Basque culture, history and society, and his dedication to the study of the cultural and social anthropology of the peoples of Spain. He belonged to many cultural and scholarly foreign societies, including the Hispanic Society of America, the German Archaeological Institute, and the Society of Portuguese Archaeologists. Baroja was a guest lecturer at many universities, including the Universities of Berkeley, Munich, Bonn, Oxford, Rome, Cologne, plus ones in various other countries in Spanish America and Europe. He was said to be unorthodox, critical and always independent, with opinions that were often very controversial.
