“Analytically the most intelligent book to come out of Spain in recent years.” Stanley Payne, University of Wisconsin-Madison
“This excellent and thought-provoking collection of essays, written by leading experts in the field, provides a much-needed comparative dimension to the history of modern Spain. It will be essential reading for all those seeking a clearer understanding of how Spain has developed since the nineteenth century.” Professor Tom Buchanan, University of Oxford
“By adopting a comparative perspective, this collection of essays highlights Spanish idiosyncrasies, as well as many similarities with other European countries in their quest for modernity. A well-edited, coherent, and informative volume with a broad appeal to students of European history in general and Spanish history in particular. Nigel Townson has done a fine job in assembling a group of distinguished historians to challenge commonly-held assumptions as to Spain’s exceptionalism. Sophisticated yet clearly written and argued, Is Spain Different? is a valuable teaching resource.” Professor Raanan Rein, Elías Sourasky Professor of Latin American and Spanish History, Tel Aviv University
“With contributions from leading Spanish, British and North American scholars, this is quite simply one of the most sophisticated and subtle books on Spain’s fascinating and controversial contemporary history published in the past decade.” Charles Powell, Professor of Spanish History at San Pablo-CEU University, Madrid
