Spain, 1833-2002: People and State

Mary Vincent (1979, Modern History)

Spain, 1833-2002: People and State (Oxford University Press, 2007)

In her latest book, Mary Vincent provides a cultural history of Spanish politics in the turbulent period from the civil war of 1833 to the Spanish adoption of the Euro in 2002. Focusing on the question of how ordinary people came to identify themselves both as citizens and as Spaniards during this time, Vincent argues that that a weak state rather than a weak sense of nation was the key to Spain’s problematic development.
