The Spanish Republic and Civil War  - Casanova

Written by Casanova
Edition: 2010
Format(s): EPUB
Language: English

The Spanish Civil War has gone down in history for the horrific violence that it generated. The climate of euphoria and hope that greeted the overthrow of the Spanish monarchy was utterly transformed just five years later by a cruel and destructive civil war. Here Julián Casanova, one of Spain's leading historians, offers a magisterial new account of this critical period in Spanish history. He exposes the ways in which the Republic brought into the open simmering tensions between Catholics and hardline anticlericalists, bosses and workers, Church and State, order and revolution. In 1936 these conflicts tipped over into the sacas, paseos and mass killings which are still passionately debated today. The book also explores the decisive role of the international instability of the 1930s in the duration and outcome of the conflict. Franco's victory was in the end a victory for Hitler and Mussolini and for dictatorship over democracy.

"Julián Casanova is one of the most exciting and innovative historians working in Spain today. His books on the role of the Catholic Church in the Spanish Civil War, on anarchism and on the Francoist repression have earned him an enviable international reputation. In The Spanish Republic and Civil War, his characteristically impressive empirical research is crowned by a lively style adorned with penetrating insights." Paul Preston, London School of Economics and Political Science

"Julián Casanova, one of Spain's leading historians, has written a comprehensive and dynamic account that avoids standard cliches and lays bare the complexities of Europe's most intricate domestic drama during the years preceding World War II." Stanley Payne, University of Wisconsin-Madison

"Julián Casanova's book is a grand synthesis in the most positive sense. The author calmly integrates the most recent scholarship, demonstrating that the decline into civil war was not inevitable and how the Second Republic was debilitated as much by political and social fragmentation as by polarisation. At the current moment of considerable controversy over the politics of memory in Spain, the importance of this highly readable and rigorously objective account of both the origins and experience of the civil war, which subtly draws attention to the complexities of Spain's history in the 1930s, can hardly be overstated." Michael Richards, University of the West of England

"Casanova's book must stand beside the very best on the Republic and Civil War available to an English-language readership." -New Left Review

"Highly recommended." -Choice

"This book is one that should find many audiences; historians of modern Spain; general readers interested in a readable one-volume introduction to the 1930s in Spain; and other following broader developments in Europe." -Bulletin for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies

" excellent introduction to the troubled years between the formation of the Second Republic in April 1931 and Franco's victory eight years later." -History

"A valuable read for anyone interested in Spain, Twentieth Century Europe, or the Second World War." -A. A. Nofi,

"The period that Casanova studies in this book is 'the topic' par excellence when discussing Spanish history: the destruction of the Second Republic and the coming and unfolding of the Civil War." -Antonio Cazorla-Sanchez, The Journal of Modern History

"a sophisticated political narrative of 1930s Spain." - Scott Eastman, Journal of World History
