La biografía definitiva de un líder político fundamental del siglo XX español. Francisco Largo Caballero (Madrid, 15 de octubre de 1869 - París, 23 de marzo de 1946), «el Lenin español», fue un sindicalista y político, histórico dirigente del Partido Socialista Obrero Español y la Unión General de Trabajadores. Aunque el socialismo español siempre ha reservado un lugar de honor a Pablo Iglesias, su fundador, Francisco Largo Caballero fue el dirigente obrero más relevante e influyente en la España del siglo pasado. Largo Caballero apareció como el auténtico heredero de Iglesias. Arquetipo de dirigente de masas, sindicalista, político, ministro y presidente del Gobierno, promotor y mantenedor de proyectos societarios durante cincuenta años de militancia, el momento culminante de su trayectoria llegó en los años treinta, ya a una edad avanzada. La personalidad y la actuación de Largo Caballero fueron siempre complejas, poliédricas e incluso contradictorias. Le tocó vivir tiempos convulsos en primera línea de la política: la dictadura de Primo de Rivera, la República y la guerra civil. Su liderazgo y sus decisiones han sido muy criticados y su figura, tergiversada con frecuencia, ha concitado a menudo opiniones adversas, con pocas aunque notables excepciones. Este libro no es una reivindicación de su papel histórico ni una hagiografía. Pero una historia rigurosa no puede basarse sino en los instrumentos auténticos de la historiografía: documentación y argumentación. Esa ha sido la extraordinaria tarea de Julio Arostegui: despejar los mitos y los prejuicios y buscar la verdad histórica. El resultado es «otro» Largo Caballero bien distinto del que ha presentado la literatura al uso y uno de los retratos más fieles de una figura fundamental para la historia del siglo XX. Porque para entender el presente hay que estudiar el pasado.
Poland and Spain in the Interwar and Postwar Period

Poland and Spain in the Interwar and Postwar Period

In the second volume comparing Poland and Spain (the comparison being fruit of cooperation between the University of Warsaw and the CEU San Pablo University in Madrid) we concentrate on studying two historical periods of the 20th century, the happy 1920′s of the interwar period and later on at the end of World War II. The two periods have been studied in their corresponding countries but have never been compared in parallel to see their coincidences and differences. Poland and Spain of the time allow for a comparison due to the similar populations, social agricultural models with intensely industrialised local centres and modern structuring processes which lead to a crisis of the very national unity. The selected periods present indispensable similarities which make the study interesting.
Interrogating Francoism

Helen Graham here brings together leading historians of international renown to examine 20th-century Spain in light of Franco's dictatorship and its legacy. Interrogating Francoism uses a three-part structure to look at the old regime, the civil war and the forging of Francoism; the nature of Franco's dictatorship; and the 'history wars' that have since taken place over his legacy. Social, political, economic and cultural historical approaches are integrated throughout and 'top down' political analysis is incorporated along with 'bottom up' social perspectives. The book places Spain and Francoism in comparative European context and explores the relationship between the historical debates and present-day political and ideological controversies in Spain. In part a tribute to Paul Preston, the foremost historian of contemporary Spain today, Interrogating Francoism includes an interview with Professor Preston and a comprehensive bibliography of his work, as well as extensive further readings in English. It is a crucial volume for all students of 20th-century Spain.

La década de los años treinta del siglo XX, en España, fue por muchos motivos una década socialista. Ninguno de los procesos que vivió el país durante la Segunda República y la Guerra Civil escapó a la participación e influencia del PSOE. En esta obra, el autor analiza esa década socialista desde el ámbito valenciano, a través del papel, la deriva y las actuaciones del socialismo político de la provincia de Valencia, la Federación Socialista Valenciana, una organización tradicionalmente considerada débil, pero que demostró tener fuerza para llegar a protagonizar muchos de los procesos internos más importantes del socialismo en esta década. Reformismo, radicalización y conflicto interno fueron los hitos de esta trayectoria que comenzó en un ambiente festivo de movilización popular, pero tuvo un final calamitoso, sobre todo, para los militantes socialistas.

Tras afrontar la represión de los Gobiernos de la Restauración y de la dictadura de Primo de Rivera, las organizaciones anarquistas y comunistas fueron extendiendo su influencia entre el proletariado almeriense. Durante el periodo republicano se produjo la legalización y un crecimiento de su militancia que se multiplicó durante la guerra civil. Libertarios y comunistas, enfrentados en numerosas ocasiones, se hicieron con el control de una parte de los comités revolucionarios, primero, y de las corporaciones municipales después. La derrota supuso la desaparición del movimiento obrero organizado y llevó a que sus dirigentes fueran encarcelados, fusilados o tuvieran que marchar al exilio Formato CD-ROM

Coral Glynn arrives at Hart House, an isolated manse in the English countryside, early in the very wet spring of 1950, to nurse the elderly Mrs. Hart, who is dying of cancer. Hart House is also inhabited by Mrs. Prence, the perpetually disgruntled housekeeper, and Major Clement Hart, Mrs. Hart's war-ravaged son, who is struggling to come to terms with his latent homosexuality. When a child's game goes violently awry in the woods surrounding Hart House, a great shadow—love, perhaps—descends upon its inhabitants. Like the misguided child's play, other seemingly random events—a torn dress, a missing ring, a lost letter—propel Coral and Clement into the dark thicket of marriage. A period novel observed through a refreshingly gimlet eye, Coral Glynn explores how quickly need and desire can blossom into love, and just as quickly transform into something less categorical. Borrowing from themes and characters prevalent in the work of mid-twentieth-century British women writers, Peter Cameron examines how we live and how we love—with his customary empathy and wit.

Sociophobia

The great ideological cliché of our time, César Rendueles argues in Sociophobia, is the idea that communication technologies can support positive social dynamics and improve economic and political conditions. We would like to believe that the Internet has given us the tools to overcome modernity's practical dilemmas and bring us into closer relation, but recent events show how technology has in fact driven us farther apart. Named one of the ten best books of the year by Babelia El País, Sociophobia looks at the root causes of neoliberal utopia's modern collapse. It begins by questioning the cyber-fetishist dogma that lulls us into thinking our passive relationship with technology plays a positive role in resolving longstanding differences. Rendueles claims that the World Wide Web has produced a diminished rather than augmented social reality. In other words, it has lowered our expectations with respect to political interventions and personal relations. In an effort to correct this trend, Rendueles embarks on an ambitious reassessment of our antagonistic political traditions to prove that post-capitalism is not only a feasible, intimate, and friendly system to strive for but also essential for moving past consumerism and political malaise.

Guerrilla Warfare

Guerrilla Warfare

Che Guevara, the larger-than-life hero of the 1959 revolutionary victory that overturned the Cuban dictatorship, believed that revolution would also topple the imperialist governments in Latin America. Che's call to action, his proclamation of "invincibility"-the ultimate victory of revolutionary forces-continues to influence the course of Latin American history and international relations. His amazing life story has lifted him to almost legendary status. This edition of Che's classic work Guerrilla Warfare contains the text of his book, as well as two later essays titled "Guerrilla Warfare: A Method" and "Message to the Tricontinental." A detailed introduction by Brian Loveman and Thomas M. Davies, Jr., examines Guevara's text, his life and political impact, the situation in Latin America, and the United States' response to Che and to events in Latin America. Loveman and Davies also provide in-depth case studies that apply Che's theories on revolution to political situations in seven Latin American countries from the 1960s to the present. Also included are political chronologies of each country discussed in the case studies and a postscript tying the analyses together. This book will help students gain a better understanding of Che's theoretical contribution to revolutionary literature and the inspiration that his life and Guerrilla Warfare have provided to revolutionaries since the 1960s. This volume is an invaluable addition to courses in Latin American studies and political science.
