Download or read book Revolution and the State written by Danny Evans and published by Routledge/Canada Blanch Studies on Contemporary Spain. This book was released on 2018-04-26 with total page 244 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book analyses the processes of revolution and state reconstruction that took place in the Republican zone during the Spanish civil war. It focuses on the radical anarchists who sought to advance the revolutionary agenda. Their activity came into conflict with the leaders of the libertarian organisations committed to the reconstruction of the Republican state following its near collapse in July 1936. This process implied participation not only in the organs of governance but also in the ideological reconstitution of the Republic as a patriarchal and national entity. Using original sources, the book shows that the opposition to this process was both broader and more ideologically consistent than has hitherto been assumed, and that, in spite of its heterogeneity, it united around a common revolutionary programme. This resistance to state reconstruction was informed by the essential insight of anarchism: that the function and purpose of the modern state cannot be transformed from within. By situating the struggles of the radical anarchists within the contested process of state reconstruction, the book affirms the continued relevance of this insight to the study of the Spanish revolution.

This book was released on 2016-12-18 with total page 178 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book constitutes a new attempt to make known the historical events known as the Spanish Revolution from my point of view, which should be understood as liberating and not repressive censorship, or any other adjective in which the reminiscences of the old left. More than anything because that old left locked in the factories of the first half of the XX century happened to assault the streets, the schools, etc. In the 60s, breaking the walls, even of prisons and psychiatric. "Revolution and collectivities in Spain of the Civil War" also shows how a revolution is made that we could call "the Spanish style" (that is, using little head and a lot of heart). For some it went well, for others it went wrong, and for others (it is my case) it is an almost inexhaustible source of both bad and good feelings when I think of the meaning of the word Liberty with capital letters. In this sense, I considered it necessary for readers to understand how small-scale revolution was or was to function, fleeing a little (only the inevitable) from the internal struggles between the large political blocs between communists, socialists, anarchists, Nationalists, etc. In short: To tell the losing and more or less desperate defeat of the Spanish Civil War, and the Spanish Revolution, from the Republican point of view of the conflict, with Special reference to the labor movement associated with a tremendously revolutionary society as was Spain, and that the Franco regime drowned in a sea of tears for 40 years, and to this day.
Download or read book The Foundations of Civil War written by Francisco J. Romero Salvado and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2016-04-29 with total page 492 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book analyzes the decay of Liberal politics in Spain as the regional version of the general crisis that engulfed most of Europe between 1916 and 1923. Romero enriches the important wider debate about this watershed period of European history when, in the face of unprecedented mass social protest and political mobilization, incumbent governing elites struggled to find a valid formula of social containment in the dawning of mass politics which also saw the spread of the radical new doctrines of Bolshevism and Fascism. Above all, this book examines Spain’s "crisis of modernization," a process marked by complex social and political realignments through which the nature of civil society was profoundly altered. It resulted in an unprecedented spiral of violence and a polarization that firstly led to an authoritarian formula of social control in 1923, and ultimately to the outbreak of civil war in 1936.
Download or read book Democracy and Civil War in Spain 1931-1939 written by Martin Blinkhorn and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2008-02-20 with total page 80 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the 1930s Spain underwent a period of intense and bloody upheaval that culminated in three years of civil war and the triumph of the Nationalist rebels under General Franco. Hundreds of thousands of Spanish - and non-Spanish - people died in their struggle against what was seen as the greatest evil of the time: fascism and its commitment to the defeat of democracy. Fifty years on, with the coming of a new democracy to Spain, previously inaccessible research materials have become available to historians; old orthodoxies have been challenged and the continuing debate concerning the origins of the Spanish Civil War has been lively. In the light of this renewed interest Martin Blinkhorn has provided a lucid and readable introduction to events in Spain in the 1930s.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Casanova explores the concept of anarchism as both a political ideology and a social movement during the Second Republic and the Civil War (1931-39). Dividing the work into two parts, the author first explores anarchism's strained relations with the Republic, and then goes on to analyse the revolutionary process that broke out in the summer of 1936. The Spanish Civil War became the setting for the struggle between revolution and counter-revolution as well as being, for many outsiders, the place of armed conflict between the forces of democracy and fascism. This book is a path-breaking synthesi.

Download or read book Transatlantic Anarchism during the Spanish Civil War and Revolution, 1936-1939 written by Morris Brodie and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2020-04-29 with total page 292 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Between 1936 and 1939, the Spanish Civil War showcased anarchism to the world. News of the revolution in Spain energised a moribund international anarchist movement, and activists from across the globe flocked to Spain to fight against fascism and build the revolution behind the front lines. Those that stayed at home set up groups and newspapers to send money, weapons and solidarity to their Spanish comrades. This book charts this little-known phenomenon through a transnational case study of anarchists from Britain, Ireland and the United States, using a thematic approach to place their efforts in the wider context of the civil war, the anarchist movement and the international left.
