The Spanish Case

  • J. Romero Maura
Part of the Studies in Comparative Politics book series (STCP)


Spain is the western country which, second only to Portugal, holds the record for the most unmitigated, the most lasting and — by its own standards — the most successful domination of the extreme Right. None should be surprised, then, that after thirty-one years of determined authoritarian rule, Spanish anarchism should not be a significant force at present. Like all revolutionaries everywhere and always, Spanish anarchists in the past managed to gather some strength only when there was a degree of freedom allowing them to organize politically, unheard of in General Franco’s regime, or else when dictators were afflicted by impotence in certain geographical areas, or by glaring imbecility, none of which has been the case in post-civil war Spain.
