Summary

Summary

This lively new textbook is a comprehensive treatment of Spanish history, capturing nearly two centuries of Spain in one volume. It provides a major reevaluation of modern Spain and draws from the work of leading historians in North America, Britain, and Spain. It also includes extensive material from archives that have only become available since the end of the Franco regime in the 1970s. The book is organized into chronological sections around the main periods of historical change in Spain and each section provides an in-depth exploration of the principle themes and developments for its period. Combining new approaches and research, it will be an invaluable for anyone studying modern Europe.


Summary

The history of Spain has been revitalized since the death of Franco in 1975 and the restoration of democracy. Taking advantage of unprecedented access to archives, historians have explored long-standing issues more fully as well as bringing new questions to bear, adopting new methodologies,and developing new interpretations. The traditional view of Spain as somehow beyond the orbit of other European countries is in retreat and it is part of the purpose of the present volume to mark this reintegration of Spanish history into the history of western Europe as a whole.Leading Spanish scholars--whose work is rarely available to an anglophone audience--have combined with North American and British historians to produce a major re-evaluation of modern Spanish history, the first for some 20 years. Exploring the main issues in social, economic, cultural, and politicalhistory, within a clear chronological framework, the book reflects the liveliness and diversity of the field and provides points of entry to key issues for students and scholars alike.
