The Spanish Civil War
The Spanish Civil War was one of the pivotal events of the twentieth century. For many it was the prelude to the Second World War, for others the 'last great cause' where the prevailing ideologies of the time clashed in mortal combat.
The complex nature of the issues and participants has led modern histories to speak of a 'series of Spanish wars' rather than the bi-polar 'two Spains'. Consequently, the Civil War has generated a massive, often controversial, historiography, and interest in the war has not abated.
Rather than just another introductory history, Andy Durgan provides a clear overview and critical evaluation of the key debates and recent published research on the origins, outbreak, course and implications of the Spanish Civil War. Durgan covers:
Featuring a helpful Chronology, maps and a Select Bibliography to aid study, this is an essential guide for anyone with an interest in one of the most terrible conflicts of modern times.
ANDY DURGAN lectures in the School of Modern Languages at the University of Barcelona, Spain. He was Historical Advisor for Ken Loach's film Land and Freedom.
