What is perhaps the most interesting aspect of this book is that it offers a snapshot of the 1930s that most Americans would not be likely to hear from their grandparents' or great-grandparents' reminiscences, or from nostalgic Hollywood period films or TV shows. The countercultural 1960s could hardly compare to all the social dislocations and ideological turmoil that rocked Europe during the Great Depression years, especially in countries such as Germany, Italy, or (of course) Spain. Though in one sense it was a time of great violence and injustice, there also existed many forms of liberation - for the poor, for freethinkers on both ends of the political spectrum, and (perhaps most dramatically of all) for women. It was a truly exciting period in history, when ordinary people felt empowered by their beliefs and were willing to fight, kill, and die for them.Read more ›
