Synopses & Reviews
The tragic defeat of the Spanish Civil War has long fascinated those who continue to struggle for social justice. Pierre Broué and Émile Témine’s long-out-of-print history details the internal political dynamics that led the popular front to hold back radical measures that would have galvanized the working class and the peasant base of the revolution and decisively weaken Franco’s fascist forces.
An outstanding history that shows how a promising workers' movement ended in a fascist victory.
