Balanced collection of essays dealing with the Second Spanish Republic, which gives a background to the Spanish Civil War. Leading specialists analyze the main difficulties to consolidate a liberal democracy in 1930s Spain and why it fell into a civil war, all while revising the stereotypes of the Second Republic in both left and right-wing interpretations. As in Payne’s Spain’s First Democracy you will discover how everyone is to blame for the horrendous civil war that broke out. Highly recommended!
