In this paper we propose an approach to the broad spectrum of Spanish perceptions of the United States throughout the twentieth century.  Several issues will be explored. Firstly, we will analyze whether these perceptions have been significant in quantity. In the second place, we will attempt to describe the various forms they have adopted and their influence in twentieth-century Spain. Lastly, we will examine their evolution in time, specifically in the context of the diverse political regimes which ruled the country throughout the century. We will approach the topic through the analysis of sources such as the Spanish press, literature, photographs, ads, etc.
