A key feature of Books4Spain, the No 1 bookshop for books and eBooks about Spain, are Spanish Themes.
These are designed to enable users to easily explore and discover in greater detail books covering important aspects of Spanish culture and history.
One of our themes is the Spanish Civil War, which essentially saw the end of the anarchist movement in Spain.
This movement was stronger in Spain than probably any other country from the mid-1800s to 1939.
It is interesting to note that Spanish Prime Minister Jose Canalejas was assassinated by an anarchist on 12 November 1912 while in a bookshop.
We at Books4Spain are not anarchists (yet!) and promise not to shoot our customers!
To understand why anarchism took such a strong hold on Spain you need to delve deep into the social, political and economic history of this very complex country.
As a starter for ten I would refer you to the following articles on our blog www.books4spain.com/blog.
We also have two books which deal specifically with anarchism, Anarchism and the Spanish Civil War, by Julian Casanova; and Story of the Iron Column, Militant Anarchism in the Spanish Civil War by Abel Paz, and many others where it is discussed.
In fact, Books4Spain has thousands of books and eBooks in a number of categories ranging from Spanish Literature, Travel, Holidays & Leisure, Learning Spanish, Food & Drink, Crime Fiction to History and Novels.
