The Problem of Representative Government in Spain

(p.1) Introduction
The Collapse of the Spanish Republic, 1933-1936

Stanley G. Payne

Yale University Press

This introductory chapter reviews the political history of Spain in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, which can be divided into a set of seven subperiods wherein a rapid and precocious liberal or radical breakthrough was followed by a longer period of conservatism or reaction. By the start of the twentieth century, Spain had one of the longest “modern” political histories in the world, dating from the time it became the second largest continental European country to independently adopt a modern liberal constitution, in 1812.

Keywords:   Spain, political history, liberalism, constitution, conservatism
