More than sixty-five years since it ended, the Spanish Civil War continues to arouse fervent passions. This exciting new collection of primary sources uses military and political documents, media accounts and contemporary propaganda to create a representative and illuminating survey of this watershed event. Ranging from the origins of the uprising against Franco through to its turbulent aftermath, the chronologically themed structure clearly outlines key points in the conflict, while highlighting the little-known roles of race and gender in determining the war's outcome. Unearthing many rare sources for the first time, and richly illustrated with poster art and other contemporary images, the book reveals the variety of perspectives held by those immediately involved in the war, and sheds fresh light on some of the most crucial and contested areas of this epoch-shaping conflict. - Themed sections focus on the war's political context, the military rising, international reactions, resistance and aftermath - Includes a full introduction which delineates the field - Ideal as a student reference, and as a starting point for individual research
