  • Nigel Townson has produced a superb synthesis of the new Spanish history, while offering an original and arresting narrative of his own.

    Professor José Álvarez Junco, Complutense University of Madrid
  • Nigel Townson's compelling analysis of twentieth-century Spain combines a deep knowledge of European history with the novelist's eye for the telling detail.

    Professor Michael Seidman, University of North Carolina
  • Townson provides an engaging and accessible account of Spain's tumultuous twentieth century. Convincingly dismantling the myth of Spanish exceptionalism, he shows that the lights and shadows of modern Spanish history can only be properly understood in the broader European context. This is a compelling and even-handed book
