9780044454588: A Social History of Modern Spain (A Social History of Europe)

In "A Social History of Modern Spain", Adrian Shubert analyzes the social development of Spain since 1800. He explores the social conflicts at the root of the Spanish Civil War and how that war and the subsequent changes from democracy to Franco and back again have shaped the social relations of the country. Paying equal attention to the rural and urban worlds and respecting the great regional diversity within Spain, Shubert draws a sophisticated picture of a country struggling with the problems posed by political, economic, and social change. He begins with an overview of the rural economy and the relationship of the people to the land, then moves on to an analysis of the work and social lives of the urban population. He then discusses the changing roles of the clergy, the military, and various local government, community, and law enforcement officials. "A Social History of Modern Spain" concludes with an analysis of the dramatic political, economic, and social changes during the Franco regime and during the subsequent return to democracy.
