A century of fascism in Spain, 1918-2014

  • Casals, Xavier
The history of fascism in Spain tends to be presented in a standard chronological pattern that begins in 1933 with the creation of the Falange Española party, and follows with its subsequent development during the Civil War (1936-1939), and under the dictatorship of general Francisco Franco (1939-1975). This study offers a different perspective, beginning in 1918, with the appearance of the first fascist organization in Barcelona, and ends with an analysis of the legacy of fascism in today’s extreme right.
