Bringing the work of Spanish historians to the English-speaking world, this book offers public testimony to the enormous strides made in recent years by Spanish professional scholars in shaking off the reluctance to confront the past that marked the transition to democracy after Franco’s death in 1975. It brings together some of the leading experts on the violence of the Spanish Civil War to showcase their latest research, providing a broad overview of the institutional repression and its consequences, while offering up new interpretations and perspectives.
