Mito del carácter nacional
The anthropologist Julio Caro Baroja, the nephew of the novelist Pío B., wrote a book with this title (1971) reviewed here in the ABC, the Monarquist newspaper, in 2004. Although ABC is right-wing more than left, and this review appeals to the notion of Spain's normality, I still find myself agreeing with Caro Baroja's skepticism. A book I will have to read for myself in any case. I also found an article by Juaristi on Menéndez Pidal.
