Twentieth-century Spain: Politics and Society in Spain, 1898-1998 (European History in Perspective)

Twentieth-century Spain: Politics and Society in Spain, 1898-1998 (European History in Perspective)

by Francisco J . Romero Salvado (Author)

Synopsis

Today, Spain is a modern society with an important profile in the European Union. This image contrasts strikingly with the reality of Spain just one hundred years ago. After the loss of almost all her overseas empire in 1898, Spain faced the new century handicapped by her international isolation, backward economy and a stagnant and elitist political system.
Twentieth-Century Spain tells the gripping story of this country's long and often painful struggle towards modernity. During this period, Spain has seen two monarchies, one republic, two dictatorships and one of the bloodiest civil wars in Europe's recent history.

Book Overview: 'This volume is a laudable attempt by Francisco Romero to produce a synthetic account of Spain's tortuous twentieth-century history for an undergraduate readership.' - Mary Vincent, History On-Line 'Through his expertise, Romero is aware of the aspects of the topic that the students perceive to be the most complex and has written his book to explain them. As such both teacher and pupil can benefit from his knowledge. This is a very worthy book, which will earn its worth again and again.' - Anne M. McEwan, History Teaching Review Yearbook 'A useful addition to the voluminous literature which offers a sound introduction to a range of issues.' - P.J. McGuire, University of Brighton '[T]he unbiased nature of Romero Salvado's account positively shines.' - Ricardo Landeira, Hispania
