“A collection of this sort is long overdue…This volume, edited by labour historians from two different generations, provides English-speaking readers with a sampler of the work in the field over the last two decades.” • Labour/Le Travail


Focusing on organization, resistance and political culture, this collection represents some of the best examples of recent Spanish historiography in the field of modern Spanish labor movements. Topics range from socialism to anarchism, from the formation of the liberal state in the 19th century to the Civil War, and from women in the work place to the fate of the unions under Franco.
