Red Barcelona by Angel Smith
Book DescriptionAs one of Europe's great industrial and revolutionary centres Barcelona has been in need of a detailed social and cultural history, yet there is actually a paucity of detailed research. This book redresses the balance. Focusing on the entire twentieth century, it allows for the emergence of long-term trends, and deals with both classic and newer themes of labour history. This novel and authoritative work will interest not only those working on Spain, but all scholars and students of comparative history.

Nationalism, Transnationalism in Spain and Latin America, 1808-1923, Hardback (February 2017)
This book examines the importance of the Spanish heritage in Spanish-speaking Latin America following independence, and the connections that remained or were re-established between Spain and her former colonies in the Americas over the course of the nineteenth century.
Origins of Catalan Nationalism, 1770-1898, Hardback (March 2014)
This book looks at the reasons behind the emergence of a Catalan nationalist movement from the late 1880s, one of the most important developments that took place in nineteenth-century Spain, with the 'Catalan question' thereafter never far from the centre of the Spanish political stage.
Agony of Spanish Liberalism, Hardback (May 2010)» View all books by Angel Smith
It was during the period 1913-1923 that the seeds of political polarization and social violence culminating in the Spanish Civil War were sown. This volume explores the causes of the growing schism within Spanish society, focusing on the crisis of the Spanish liberal order, under challenge from newly mobilized forces on both the Right and Left.
