In this revised edition of A Short History of the Spanish Civil
War, Julian Casanova tells the gripping story of the Spanish
Civil War.

Written in elegant and accessible prose, the book charts
the most significant events and battles alongside the main
players in the tragedy. Casanova provides answers to some
of the pressing questions (such as the roots and extent of
anticlerical violence) that have been asked in the 70 years
that have passed since the painful defeat of the Second
Republic. Now with a revised introduction, Casanova offers
an overview of recent historiographical shifts; not least the
wielding of the conflict to political ends in certain strands
of contemporary historiography towards an alarming neo-
Francoist revisionism. It is the ideal introduction to the
Spanish Civil War.
