Description - Spain and the Great Powers in the Twentieth Century by Sebastian Balfour
An examination of the international context to, and influences on, Spanish history and politics from 1898 to the late 1990s. Spanish history is necessarily international, with the significance of Spain's neutrality in World War I and the global influences on the outcome of the Spanish Civil War. Taking the defeat in the Spanish American war of 1898 as a starting point, the book includes surveys on: the crisis of neutrality during World War I; foreign policy under the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera; the allies and the Spanish Civil War; Nazi Germany and Franco's Spain; Spain and the Cold War; and relations with the United States. The book traces the important topic of modern Spanish diplomacy up to the present day.
