Today, Spain is a modern society with an important profile in the European Union. This image contrasts strikingly with the reality of Spain one hundred years ago. After losing almost all her overseas empire in 1898, Spain faced the new century handicapped by international isolation, a backward economy, and a stagnant and elitist political system. This book tells the gripping story of Spain's long and often painful struggle towards modernity. During this period, the country has seen two monarchies, one republic, two dictatorships and one of the bloodiest civil wars in Europe's recent history. The author provides a comprehensive, thorough and detailed analysis of Spain's political, social and economic evolution throughout this century, examining the crisis and collapse of clientelist politics and the attempts at reform during the inter-war years through military dictatorship and progressive republic; the Nationalist victory and Franco's authoritarian rule; the dismantlement of the Francoist state; and the consolidation of democracy. There is also an assessment of Spain's current political situation.

"This is a much-needed new overview of Spanish social and political history which sets developments in twentieth-century Spain within a broader European context. Juliâan Casanova, one of Spain's leading historians, and Carlos Gil Andrâes chart the country's experience of democracy, dictatorship and civil war and its dramatic transformation from an agricultural and rural society to an industrial and urban society fully integrated into Europe. They address key questions and issues that continue to be discussed and debated in contemporary historiography, such as why the Republic was defeated, why Franco's dictatorship lasted so long and what mark it has left on contemporary Spain. This is an essential book for students as well as for anyone interested in Spain's turbulent twentieth century"--

Kindheit und Erziehung rückten nach 1900 in den Mittelpunkt gesellschaftlicher Selbstverständigung. Die Formung neuer Menschen war ein wichtiges Ziel der politischen Massenbewegungen und Regime im frühen 20. Jahrhundert. Dies gilt auch für den spanischen Katholizismus. Till Kössler verfolgt die widersprüchliche Dynamik katholischer Gesellschaftspolitik im Spannungsfeld von Demokratie und totalitärer Diktatur und fragt nach ihrem Wechselspiel mit der urbanen Gesellschaft und Kultur Madrids. In einem breiten historischen Zugriff zeichnet er das Porträt einer Gesellschaft zwischen überschwänglichen Reformhoffnungen und politischen Enttäuschungen und liefert damit einen innovativen Beitrag zur Geschichte der klassischen Moderne in einer bisher weniger beachteten Region Europas.

Spiel mit dem Feuer: Die britische Aussenpolitik vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg Europa vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg: Im Zentrum der internationalen und globalen Beziehungen agiert die Weltmacht Grossbritannien. Auf allen Ebenen der Diplomatie versucht es die alten Bundnisse der europaischen Staaten aufzubrechen. Die Geschichtswissenschaft hat diese Bemuhungen bisher als Reaktionen auf die aggressive Aussenpolitik des Deutschen Kaiserreiches interpretiert. Andreas Rose kann dagegen aufzeigen, wie sehr die englische Aussenpolitik von ganz anderen Interessen getrieben wurde: innerbritischen, kontinentalen und imperialen. Er entwirft den politischen Raum Londons, in dem uber aussen- und sicherheitspolitische Massnahmen intensiv diskutiert und aus dem heraus Entscheidungen getroffen wurden."

Explaining crime by reference to abnormalities of the brain is just one example of how the human and social sciences have influenced the approach to social problems in Western societies since 1880. Focusing on applications such as penal policy, therapy, and marketing, this volume examines how these sciences have become embedded in society.
