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.

This book explores the role of young people in shaping a democratic Spain, focusing on their urban performances of dissent, their consumption of censored literature, political-literary magazines and comic books and their involvement in a newly developed punk scene. After forty years of dictatorship, Madrid became the centre of both a young democracy and a vibrant artistic scene by the early 1980s. Louie Dean Valencia-García skillfully examines how young Spaniards occupied public plazas, subverted Spanish cultural norms and undermined the authoritarian state by participating in a postmodern punk subculture that eventually grew into the 'Movida Madrileña'. In doing so, he exposes how this antiauthoritarian youth culture reflected a mixture of sexual liberation, a rejection of the ideological indoctrination of the dictatorship, a reinvention of native Iberian pluralistic traditions and a burgeoning global youth culture that connected the USA, Britain, France and Spain. By analyzing young people's everyday acts of resistance, Antiauthoritarian Youth Culture in Francoist Spain offers a fascinating account of Madrid's youth and their role in the transition to the modern Spanish democracy.

Μια βαθιά διορατική κοινωνική ιστορία της ανόδου του Χίτλερ στην εξουσία και των στάσεων που τήρησε ο γερμανικός λαός κατά τη διάρκεια της περιόδου του Τρίτου Ράιχ.Βασισμένο σε τρεις και πλέον δεκαετίες εξαντλητικής ιστοριογραφικής έρευνας γύρω από τη ναζιστική Γερμανία, το βιβλίο του Kershaw συνθέτει για πρώτη φορά τις σημαντικότερες και πιο σημαίνουσες πτυχές της έρευνας του διαπρεπούς Βρετανού ιστορικού για το Ολοκαύτωμα. Τα κεφάλαια είναι δομημένα σε τρεις ενότητες –ο Χίτλερ και η Τελική Λύση, η κοινή γνώμη και οι Εβραίοι στη ναζιστική Γερμανία, και η Τελική Λύση στην ιστοριογραφία– ενώ ο συγγραφέας προσφέρει επίσης μια εισαγωγή, και έναν επίλογο για τη μοναδικότητα του ναζισμού. Ο ιστορικός Ian Kershaw είναι θεμελιωτής της κοινωνικής ιστορίας του Τρίτου Ράιχ και σε όλη τη διάρκεια της καριέρας του διεξήγε πρωτοποριακές έρευνες για τα κοινωνικά αίτια και τις επιπτώσεις της ναζιστικής πολιτικής. Με το έργο του έχει φέρει στο φως αμέτρητα στοιχεία ως προς τους τρόπους με τους οποίους οι διάφορες στάσεις που υιοθέτησε ο γερμανικός λαός διαμόρφωσαν ή δε διαμόρφωσαν τη ναζιστική πολιτική. Ο παρών τόμος προσφέρει μια σφαιρική, πολυεπίπεδη εικόνα τόσο της ολέθριας δυναμικής της ναζιστικής ηγεσίας όσο και της στάσης και συμπεριφοράς απλών Γερμανών ενόσω ο διωγμός των Εβραίων κλιμακωνόταν για να πάρει τη μορφή ολοσχερούς γενοκτονίας.

A History of Spanish Film explores Spanish film from the beginnings of the industry to the present day by combining some of the most exciting work taking place in film studies with some of the most urgent questions that have preoccupied twentieth-century Spain. It addresses new questions in film studies, like 'prestige film' and 'middlebrow cinema', and places these in the context of a country defined by social mobility, including the 1920s industrial boom, the 1940s post-Civil War depression, and the mass movement into the middle classes from the 1960s onwards. Close textual analysis of some 42 films from 1910-2010 provides an especially useful avenue into the study of this cinema for the student. - Uniquely offers extensive close readings of 42 films, which are especially useful to students and teachers of Spanish cinema. - Analyses Spanish silent cinema and films of the Franco era as well as contemporary examples. - Interrogates film's relations with other media, including literature, pictorial art and television. - Explores both 'auteur' and 'popular' cinemas. - Establishes 'prestige' and the 'middlebrow' as crucial new terms in Spanish cinema studies. - Considers the transnationality of Spanish cinema throughout its century of existence. - Contemporary directors covered in this book include Almodóvar, Bollaín, Díaz Yanes and more.

Το πεζογράφημα του Ανδρέα Καρκαβίτσα ο Αρχαιολόγος είναι ένα έργο με αλληγορικό χαρακτήρα. Οι ιδιαίτερες απόψεις του συγγραφέα, όπως εκφράζονται μέσα από τους ήρωες του έργου, δημιούργησαν ωστόσο αντιδράσεις, το έργο κατηγορήθηκε ως ανθελληνικό και αποσύρθηκε από την κυκλοφορία. Υπόθεση του έργου ο παράλληλος βίος δύο σύγχρονων Ελλήνων. Ο ένας διαπνέεται από τα μεγάλα ιδανικά της φυλής και από το προγονικό μεγαλείο, ο δεύτερος, περισσότερο πραγματιστής, βασίζει τη ζωή του στις σύγχρονες συνθήκες και πρακτικές διαβίωσης…

At the core of twentieth century history lies the most enduring world view of modern times--nationalism. The Impact of Western Nationalisms provides a unique, panoramic view of the history, the contemporary experience, and the ramifications of modern nationalism. Esteemed contributors of this innovative volume examine many facets of nationalism, including the changing definitions of Western nationalism, from nineteenth century conceptions of state development and patriotism through its increasing link with conservatism and chauvinism; the relation of nationalism to development and modernity; its role in fundamentalist and isolationist reactions against the modern world; and its expression in the "civic religion" of the state and the invention of tradition. Also, individual contributions analyze the tensions between nationalism and social ideologies which transcend the boundaries between the nation state, from marxism and international law to pan-Arabist sentiment. A recurrent focus is the issue of the "Jewish nation," its relation to Zionism, and the Holocaust as a climax to one trajectory of Western nationalism. Drawing on a wealth of examples from a wide geographical range, this volume will be essential reading for scholars of contemporary history, political science, and the social theory of the modern state. The volume, the majority of which has appeared in the Journal of Contemporary History (v. 26, no. 3/4), is dedicated to Walter Laqueur in recognition of his unique contribution to the history of modern nationalisms. "The 17 essays in this volume represent an impressive tribute--from scholars as diverse as Bernard Lewis, Zvi Yavetz, Michael Confino, and Paul Mendes-Flohrto--to the achievements of Walter Laqueur. . . . In fact, the book throughout reflects some of the impressive achievements of contemporary Israeli and Jewish scholarship." --Jewish Chronicle
