Summary:
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.
