Is Spain Different? A Comparative Look at the 19th and 20th Centuries by Nigel Townson

The slogan that launched the tourist industry in the 1960s, "Spain is Different!," has come to haunt historians. Much effort and energy have been expended ever since in endeavoring to show that Spain has not been different, but normal. Still, many of the defining features of the country's past—the civil wars, the weak liberalism, the Franco dictatorship—are taken as evidence of its distinctiveness. A related problem is that few historians have actually placed Spain's trajectory over the last two centuries within a truly comparative context. This book does so by tackling a number of key themes in modern Spanish history: liberalism, nationalism, anticlericalism, the Second Republic, the Franco dictatorship, and the transition to democracy. Is Spain Different? thereby offers a fresh and stimulating perspective on Spain's recent past sheds new light on the current political debates regarding Spain's place in the world.
