The Second Spanish Republic between 1931 and 1936 has been overshadowed by the Spanish Civil War that broke out. To change this, American Hispanist Stanley G. Payne tells the story of the Second Spanish Republic in vivid detail. Spain’s First Democracy is an indispensable book to understand why a civil war started, by studying the successes and failures of reforms and the political polarization and violence of the turbulent 1930s.
