Helen Graham here brings together leading historians of international renown to examine 20th-century Spain in light of Franco´s dictatorship and its legacy.
Interrogating Francoism uses a three-part structure to look at the old regime, the civil war and the forging of Francoism; the nature of Franco´s dictatorship; and the ´history wars´ that have since taken place over his legacy. Social, political, economic and cultural historical approaches are integrated throughout and ´top down´ political analysis is incorporated along with ´bottom up´ social perspectives. The book places Spain and Francoism in comparative European context and explores the relationship between the historical debates and present-day political and ideological controversies in Spain.
In part a tribute to Paul Preston, the foremost historian of contemporary Spain today, Interrogating Francoism includes an interview with Professor Preston and a comprehensive bibliography of his work, as well as extensive further readings in English.
