              The Genocidal Genealogy of Francoism: Violence, Memory and Impunity (PDF ebook)

              By Macho, Antonio Miguez Macho Miguez

              The Francoist command in the Spanish Civil War carried out a programme of mass violence from the start of the conflict. Through a combination of death squads and the use of military trials around 150,000 Spaniards met their deaths. Others perished in concentration camps and priso...ns. The terror took other forms, such as mass rape, extortion, appropiation of children and forced exile. The planned nature of this violence meant that the Francoists decided when the violence would begin, the way it would be carried out and when it would come to an end. This is a primary reason why the judicial concept of genocidal practice, alongside the use of comparative history, can furnish insights. The July 1936 uprising was not only aimed at ending the Republican regime, but had ideological goals: preventing the supposed Bolshevik Revolution, defending the 'unity of Spain' and reversing center-left social and cultural reforms. An over-arching objective was the elimination of a social group identified as 'an enemy of Spain' - a group defined as: not Catholic, not Spanish, not traditional. The genocidal intent of the coup via access to state resources, their monopoly of force in some territories and their subsequent victory ensured that the practice of genocide could be realized in the whole Spanish territory, permitting the hegemonic nature of the denialist discourse surrounding these crimes. Public debate over Francosim brings with it substantive disagreements. The Genocidal Genealogy of Francoism engages with the root causes of these disagreements --

              Spain Bleeds: The Development of Battlefield Blood Transfusion During the Civil War
               

              Spain Bleeds: The Development of Battlefield Blood Transfusion During the Civil War (EPUB ebook)

              By Palfreeman, Linda

              War is sometimes mistakenly construed as the chief impetus for medical innovation. Nevertheless, military conflict obliges the implementation of discoveries still at an experimental stage. Such was the case with the practice of blood transfusion during the Spanish Civil War, when... massive demand for blood provoked immediate recourse to breakthroughs in transfusion medicine not yet integrated into standard medical practice. The Spanish Civil War marked a new era in blood transfusion medicine. Frederic Duran Jordaa and Carlos Elaosegui Sarasoles, directors, respectively, of the blood transfusion services of the Republican Army and of the insurgent forces, were innovators in the field of indirect blood transfusion with preserved blood. Not only had they to create transfusion services, almost from scratch, capable of supplying campaigning armies with blood in wartime conditions, they also had to struggle against the medical establishment and to convince their medical peers of the value (not to mention the scientific significance) of what they were doing. The Blood Transfusion Service of the Republic was a truly international effort, with medical volunteers from all over the world carrying out transfusion work in primitive and often dangerous conditions --Provided by publishers.

              The Blue Division: Spanish Blood in Russia, 1941-1945
               

              The Blue Division: Spanish Blood in Russia, 1941-1945 (EPUB ebook)

              By Julia, Xavier Moreno

              This book, translated from the original Spanish, is the primary academic and historical study of the Blue Division-a Falangist initiative involving the dispatch of some 40,000 Spanish combatants (more than a half of whom paid with their lives, health, or liberty) to the Russian F...ront during the Second World War. Xavier Moreno Julia does not limit himself to relating their deeds under arms, but also analyzes the political background in detail: the complex relations between the Spanish government and Hitler's Germany; the internal conflicts between the Falangists and the Army; the rise and fall of Franco's brother-in-law, Minister Ramon Serrano Suner, who inspired the Blue Division and became the second most powerful person in Spain; and the attitude of General Agustin Munoz Grandes, commander of the Blue Division, who was encouraged by Berlin to seriously consider the possibility of taking over the reins of Spanish power. This book, based on massive documentation in German, British, and Spanish archives, is an essential source of information to understand Spain in the 1940s-an epoch when the Caudillo's power and the regime's good fortune were less secure than is often believed.

              Spain's Martyred Cities: From the Battle of Madrid to Picasso's Guernica
               

              Spain's Martyred Cities: From the Battle of Madrid to Picasso's Guernica (EPUB ebook)

              By Minchom, Martin

              Spain's Martyred Cities studies international reactions to the Spanish Civil War between the Battle of Madrid in November 1936 and the bombing of Guernica in April 1937. Many of the iconic events of the war belong to this key period, when international perceptions of the conflict... were decisively shaped. The subject is approached through French and British newspapers and pamphlets, and events are linked to both their immediate press coverage and subsequent literary and artistic representations. For contemporaries, the aerial bombardments of Madrid, Guernica and other cities formed part of a single unbroken narrative. It was only later that Guernica acquired its perceived symbolic primacy. The language of 'martyrdom' was sometimes evoked in pro-Republican writing as a means of challenging Francoist claims to the religious and moral high ground. But the ur-text was The Martyrdom of Madrid (1937), a compilation of the posthumous, censored reports of the French correspondent Louis Delapraee on the bombing of Madrid. Delapraee's earliest reporting (July-October 1936) was from both the Nationalist and Republican zones, and is used to provide an introductory overview of the early stages of the war; he was an eyewitness of the aerial bombardments of Madrid in November 1936; subsequently, the posthumous publication of his writings created a major stir in Paris. Delapraee's powerful and emotive writing provides a platform from which to discuss issues of press censorship and journalistic practice --

              Las dos Espanas: Terror and Crisis in Contemporary Spain
               

              Las dos Espanas: Terror and Crisis in Contemporary Spain (EPUB ebook)

              By Managanas, Nicholas

              The idea of a divided Spain, where one half is antagonistic to the other half, dates back at least to the 19th-century. The narrative of las dos Espanas is evident across many political and historical debates operating in the Spanish state, and contemporarily it shadows and infor...ms national issues from Catalan independence to the teaching of history in schools. But it is most polemical in debates concerning the issue of terror in all its manifestations. Las dos Espanas takes a multidisciplinary approach in understanding narratives of terror in contemporary Spain, in an attempt to contextualize terrorism socially and politically, as well as ideologically.

              Spain Bleeds: The Development of Battlefield Blood Transfusion During the Civil War (PDF ebook)

              By Palfreeman, Linda

              Research into local aspects of the Spanish Civil War and of the International Brigades' Medical Service resulted in an informal trilogy of sorts. iSalud! British Volunteers in the Republican Medical Service during the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939 and Aristocrats, Adventurers and ...Ambulances: British Medical Units in the Spanish Civil War preceded the final book Spain Bleeds, which provides long-unavailable information on health care and medical assistance during wartime. War is sometimes mistakenly construed as the chief impetus for medical innovation. Nevertheless, military conflict obliges the implementation of discoveries still at an experimental stage. Such was the case with the practice of blood transfusion during the Spanish Civil War, when massive demand for blood provoked immediate recourse to breakthroughs in transfusion medicine not yet integrated into standard medical practice. The Spanish Civil War marked a new era in blood transfusion medicine. From humble beginnings at the outbreak of war, the blood transfusion services that were created in Spain later became crucial in the treatment of casualties during the Second World War and shaped the future evolution of blood transfusion medicine throughout the developed world.

              Disdain, Distrust and Dissolution: The Surge of Support for Independence in Catalonia (EPUB ebook)

              By Bel, Germa

              Support for independence in Catalonia has increased rapidly over the past decade. This dynamic is the result of Catalans in political, economic, and academic fields who no longer believe that the necessary reform of Spanish government is a viable option in terms of achieving an a...cceptable arrangement for Catalonia to stay within the Spanish state. Rejecting assimilation on the basis that a uninational state is unworkable for a host of structural reasons, secession is viewed as the preferred choice for the betterment of the region's people. Disdain, Distrust and Dissolution dissects the problems of the relationship between Catalonia and Spain. The author investigates the dynamics of conflict between opposing groups, the resulting effects on inter-territorial distrust, and the impact on the functioning of the Spanish state as a whole. The overwhelming conclusion is that the accumulation of mutual distrust between the opposing parties is a major obstacle to the functioning of the Spanish state. Mutual perception of unfairness and lack of trust is an impediment to the design and functioning of future shared projects-and without agreement and engagement there is no benefit to either party, to the detriment of Spain and its peoples.
