British representations of the Spanish Civil War

Brian Shelmerdine

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The first full-length monograph of its kind
  • Shows that traditional notions in Britain of Spain as a country of bullfighting, bandits and flamenco were pervasive and were significant in shaping wider UK government policy towards Spain in the period
  • The author carefully assesses the different political perceptions of the 1930s Spanish scene, the role of the Catholic Church, the depiction of the two sides in terms of class, race and ethnicity, humanitarian appeals, and the plight of the Basques
