New E-Book on Spanish Civil War Bibliography (Angel Vinas, Belgium, 03/19/17 5:02 am)

This is to inform WAISers that a new e-book has been published by Marcial Pons Digital with an overview of the recent bibliography, both in Spain and abroad, about the Spanish Civil War.

Prof. Juan Andres Blanco (U Salamanca) and myself have gathered contributions from a wide array of historiographic traditions, Spanish and non-Spanish. Overviews of books published in Japan, Australasia, Scandinavia, Russia, and Eastern European countries go together with more usual locations in Western Europe, Latin America and the US. The most important part is devoted to Spanish historiography under several categories.

A work which has been for over three years in the making and is over 700 pages long was unlikely ever to be published on paper. For those familiar with bibliographical accounts on the Civil War, this e-book is an expansion of a preliminary outline published in paper by Studia Histórica Contemporánea (University of Salamanca) three years ago.

I hope that some of you who read Spanish are interested in the SCW will make the effort to order it with a mouse click. It's also inexpensive.

JE comments:  Congratulations, Ángel!  However...I visited the Marcial Pons website and could not find the title.  Could you send us a link?  I'll publish it tout de suite as an addendum to this post.

  • Spanish Civil War Bibliography Available Now (Angel Vinas, Belgium 03/22/17 4:52 AM)
    I have learned from Carlos Pascual, the director of the publishing house Marcial Pons, that Juan Andrés Blanco and my e-book La guerra civil española, una visión bibliográfica, is now available at the following link:

    https://books.google.be/books?id=D7pWDgAAQBAJ&pg=PT1&lpg=PT1&dq=Ángel+Viñas+%2B+Juan+Andrés+Blanco&source=bl&ots=uUwQC4CSKo&sig=XIm44gKiGRRAe4Brqphtu6y-9bg&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiijc_e3-fSAhVJUhQKHaEBCF4Q6AEILDAC#v=onepage&q=Ángel%20Viñas%20%2B%20Juan%20Andrés%20Blanco&f=false


    JE comments:  This is an addendum to Ángel Viñas's post of March 19th, which omitted the link.


    Congratulations and best of success with the new book, Ángel!  (Have you noticed that Ángel Viñas writes books with the frequency that most of us read them?)  From a quick scroll through the text, I see that it goes far beyond an annotated bibliography, to include a detailed panoramic essay on the entire historiography of the Spanish Civil War.

    • Thoughts on My Scholarly Productivity (Angel Vinas, Belgium 03/23/17 4:47 AM)
      I thank John Eipper very much for his kind praise about my productivity (22 March). However, without being modest in the least, I feel obliged to take some distance from it.

      1. I'm completely retired from public and University life. My only solace is my family, my dog (a Welsh terrier) and my research. It follows that I have a lot of time on my hands.


      2. In my latest book, La guerra civil española, una visión bibliográfica, my task hasn't been that of one researcher, but rather that of a manager. I've devoted a lot of time and efforts to look for experts who might contribute to the book, edit their contributions, negotiate with the publisher and keep my calm. This is scarcely worthy of such a kind praise.


      On the other hand, I´ve been very busy preparing with some colleagues a new indictment against Franco. It´s my hope that many Spanish and foreign historians won´t enjoy it overmuch when it appears early next year.


      JE comments: But you are too modest, Ángel--you're even too modest to acknowledge your modesty!  Other retirees spend time with their dog and, say, fishing, bingo, or TV.  (Come to think of it, a lot of non-retirees do the same.)


      WAISer retirees stay busier than ever, as Ronald Hilton did.  It's the WAIS Way.
