(TheHistorian, 2011)
"The breadth of his knowledge - reflected both in the details ofthe narrative, including apt quote and anecdotes, and in hiscomparative references to other national case studies - makes thisbook a rich resource for contemporary historians of Spain."
Stanley Payne, University ofWisconsin-Madison
"This book will doubtless become a point of departure foranglophone readers wanting to understand the essential strands ofcontinuity in Spanish history since the civil war." (LateModern, 2010)"Javier Tusell, Spain's leading historian of twentieth-centuryissues, has given us a brilliant account of that country'scontemporary history. By far the best single volume to read."
Charles Esdaile, University of Liverpool
"An important new study. With Spain more polarised in the wakeof the bombings of 11 March 2004 than at any time since the CivilWar, it will be required reading for all those interested in thehistory and politics of the Iberian Peninsula."
