The Spanish Labyrinth Summary


The Spanish Labyrinth: An Account of the Social and Political Background of the Spanish Civil War by Gerald Brenan

Gerald Brenan's The Spanish Labyrinth has become the classic account of the background to the Spanish Civil War. Written during and immediately after the Civil War, this 1990 book has all the vividness of the author's experience. It represents a struggle to see the issues in Spanish politics objectively, whilst bearing witness to the deep involvement which is the only possible source of much of this richly detailed account. As a literary figure on the fringe of the Bloomsbury group, Gerald Brenan lends to this narrative an engaging personal style that has become familiar to many thousands of readers over the decades since it was first published.

The Spanish Labyrinth Reviews


' ... shows the expert, subtle-minded and sometimes cynically truthful, in his quest of what really has created modern Spain ... careful, sympathetic and judicial'. Cyril Connolly The Observer
"Written with wit, lucidity and a Gibbon-like sweep--as well as a human detail earned by years of living in southern Spain--it was an inspiration to such later historians as Raymond Carr and Hugh Thomas." Los Angeles Times Book Review
