KIRKUS REVIEW

A reissue of the 1928 study of national character by the octogenarian Spaniard whose checkered career has included stints as an engineer, a professor of Spanish literature, and a diplomat. The original work proposed three character types: the Englishman as man of action; the Frenchman as man of thought; the Spaniard as man of passion. The new edition retains these and adds a chapter on language and national character, with some observations on Americans.
