This is a new and comprehensive analysis of the forces of the Spanish left during the civil war of 1936-9, and is the first analysis of its kind for more than thirty years.The book argues two crucial propositions. First, the the wartime responses (and limitations) of the Spanish left can be understood only in relation to their pre-war experiences, world views, organisational structures and the wider Spanish context. Second, that the overarching influence that shaped the evolution of the Republic between 1936 and 1939 was the war itself.
