"Not the least virtue of this valuable collection of essays is its chronological span ... highly original essays by Peter Jackson and Geoffrey Swain ... [a] stimulating work."  · The International History Review

"... an extremely valuable entry into an expanded appreciation both of international relations ... firmly grounded in primary sources ... impartial as the emotionally-charge topics permit."  · Diplomacy and Statecraft


This collection of articles covers a crucial period of Spain's history, from the rise of Franco to the crucial Stabilization Plan of 1959. Separated into four chronologically divided sections, it focuses largely on the international reactions to and the involvement of other powers in the Spanish Civil War, including an examination of French and British reactions to the situation in Spain, and Soviet, German and Italian involvement and the period of the Second World War, with a particular focus on Spain's relations to the Axis and Vichy France especially during the period of 1940/41 when a Spanish entry in to the war was most likely. The fate of the Spanish refugees and exiles in Britain and France is also highlighted, as is Spain's international position in the aftermath of the Second World War and particularly the attitude of the former Allies, Britain, France, the Soviet Union, and the USA. The volume ends with Spain's response to the unfolding economic co-operation and integration in Western Europe.

Christian Leitz teaches in the Department of History, University of Auckland.

David Dunthorn is a Visiting Lecturer for Modern European History at the University of the West of England.
