This history, the first in English, of the Spanish Socialist Party (PSOE) traces the party's long march from defeat in the Civil War of the 1930s to power in the 1980s. Drawing on the official archives of the Socialist organizations, private collections of papers, and interviews with over fifty Spanish socialists, Gillespie examines all significant aspects of the party's life, focusing particularly on internal factionalism.
