Politics, Economics and Men of Modern Spain, 1808-1946
By A. Ramos Oliveira
Crown Publishers, Gollancz, 1948, 720 pp.

This important work is not a systematic history of modern Spain, but a series of related chapters containing a wealth of material on the country's political and economic evolution since the Napoleonic invasion. Nearly two-thirds of the book deals with the Second Republic, the Civil War and the Rebel triumph. The author is anti-Franco.
