El espinazo del diablo by Guillermo del Toro ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the most personal film by Guillermo del Toro,... is also among his most frightening and emotionally layered. Set during the final week of the Spanish Civil War, it tells the tale of a twelve-year-old boy who, after his freedom-fighting father is killed, is sent to a haunted rural orphanage full of terrible secrets. Del Toro expertly combines gothic ghost story, murder mystery, and historical melodrama in a stylish melange that, like his later Pan's Labyrinth, reminds us the scariest monsters are often the human ones"--Container
Anglo-American Hispanists and the Spanish Civil War : Hispanophilia, commitment, and discipline by Sebastiaan Faber ( Book )

Perceptively written, this thoroughly researched book illuminates the political labyrinth which many American scholars had to navigate in the 1930s & 1950s &, indeed still do today. At the same time, it goes a long way to explaining why Spain & particularly its civil war engaged & continues to engage Anglo-Saxon writers

Anglo-American Hispanists and the Spanish Civil War by Sebastiaan Faber ( )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book, Faber assesses the long-term impact of the Spanish Civil War on Hispanic Studies as an academic field in the United States and Great Britain. Combining institutional history with biography, the book gives a compelling account of the dilemmas that the war posed for four Hispanists who turned their love of Spain into their life's work. A study of the reactions of American and British scholars of Spain to the Spanish Civil War "From what may seem like unpromising material, Sebastiaan Faber has produced an utterly fascinating study. Elegantly and perceptively written, this thoroughly researched book illuminates brilliantly the political labyrinth which many American scholars had to navigate in the 1930s and 1950s and, indeed, still do today. At the same time, it goes a long way to explaining why Spain and particularly its civil war engaged and continues to engage the passions of Anglo-Saxon writers." - Paul Preston author of We Saw Spain Die: Foreign Correspondents in the Spanish Civil War "Affect, ideology, and the canons of academic rigor: in this insightful and wide-ranging study, Faber explores how these three sets of forces - often at odds with each other - shape the work of British and American scholars of Spain. Focusing on the participant/observer tension that frequently haunts the work of scholars who are called upon to interpret and judge contemporary events (such as the Spanish Civil War and the Franco dictatorship), Faber sheds a fascinating new light on the history and current state of Hispanic Studies in the United States and Great Britain, and, more broadly, the constitutive tensions at the core of any scholarly enterprise." - James D. Fernandez, Associate Professor and Founding Director, King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center of NYU
