"The anthology sheds light on important aspects of modern Spanish history that have until now received little attention, and the analyses of its contributors are often interesting and astute. It thus has much to offer historians of modern Spain and of civilian wartime culture and ideologies."
-Geoffrey Jensen, Virginia Military Institute, The Journal of Military History
"...a very useful collection for specialists." --Nathanael Greene, Wesleyan University, History: Review of New Books
This 2005 book explores the ideas and culture surrounding the Spanish Civil War. Leading historians offer new interpretations of the civil war and argue that it reflected the cultural cleavages in 1930s society rather than a single great conflict between two easily identifiable sets of ideas, classes or ways of life.
