Franco: A Personal and Political Biography

Franco: A Personal and Political Biography

General Francisco Franco ruled Spain for nearly forty years, as one of the most powerful and controversial leaders in that nation's long history. He has been the subject of many biographies, several of them more than a thousand pages in length, but all the preceding works have tended toward one extreme of interpretation or the other. This is the first comprehensive scholarly biography of Franco in English that is objective and balanced in its coverage, treating all three major aspects of his life—personal, military, and political. The coauthors, both renowned historians of Spain, present a deeply researched account that has made extensive use of the Franco Archive (long inaccessible to historians). They have also conducted in-depth interviews with his only daughter to explain better his family background, personal life, and marital environment, as well as his military and political career.             Franco: A Personal and Political Biography depicts his early life, explains his career and rise to prominence as an army officer who became Europe's youngest interwar brigadier general in 1926, and then discusses his role in the affairs of the troubled Second Spanish Republic (1931–36). Stanley G. Payne and Jesús Palacios examine in detail how Franco became dictator ...

The Franco Regime, 1936–1975

The Franco Regime, 1936–1975

The history of modern Spain is dominated by the figure of Francisco Franco, who presided over one of the longest authoritarian regimes of the twentieth century. Between 1936 and the end of the regime in 1975, Franco’s Spain passed through several distinct phases of political, institutional, and economic development, moving from the original semi-fascist regime of 1936–45 to become the Catholic corporatist “organic democracy” under the monarchy from 1945 to 1957. Distinguished historian Stanley G. Payne offers deep insight into the career of this complex and formidable figure and the enormous changes that shaped Spanish history during his regime.

Franco and Hitler: Spain, Germany, and World War II

Franco and Hitler: Spain, Germany, and World War II

Was Franco sympathetic to Nazi Germany? Why didn't Spain enter World War II? In what ways did Spain collaborate with the Third Reich? How much did Spain assist Jewish refugees? This is the first book in any language to answer these intriguing questions. Stanley Payne, a leading historian of modern Spain, explores the full range of Franco’s relationship with Hitler, from 1936 to the fall of the Reich in 1945. But as Payne brilliantly shows, relations between these two dictators were not only a matter of realpolitik.  These two titanic egos engaged in an extraordinary tragicomic drama often verging on the dark absurdity of a Beckett or Ionesco play. Whereas Payne investigates the evolving relationship of the two regimes up to the conclusion of World War II, his principal concern is the enigma of Spain’s unique position during the war, as a semi-fascist country struggling to maintain a tortured neutrality. Why Spain did not enter the war as a German ally, joining with Hitler to seize Gibraltar and close the Mediterranean to the British navy, is at the center of Payne’s narrative. Franco’s only personal meeting with Hitler, in 1940 to discuss precisely this, is recounted here in groundbreaking detail that also sheds significant new light on the Spanish government’s vacil...

Franco (Spanish Edition)

Franco (Spanish Edition)

Esta biografía de Franco es el primer estudio objetivo y desapasionado sobre la figura que gobernó España durante casi cuarenta años y que se convirtió en el líder político con mayor poder de la historia del país. Sobre Franco y su dictadura se han escrito numerosos libros, pero generalmente polarizados hacia la hagiografía o la crítica de denuncia incompleta. Los autores, reconocidos historiadores, han creado una obra a partir de una profunda investigación en fuentes primarias. Esta es la primera biografía académica rigurosa que presenta a un Franco auténtico en términos objetivos, que describe sus años de infancia y adolescencia, su relación con las mujeres y su vida personal y de familia, su papel en la rebelión militar, la forja de su dictadura, su política tortuosa y de máxima tentación con el Eje en la Segunda Guerra Mundial, su metamorfosis política, sus relaciones con don Juan y con Juan Carlos, sus incertidumbres en la sucesión de la Jefatura del Estado y su negativa a fabricar la bomba atómica. Y es la primera biografía seria que dedica un capítulo entero a su responsabilidad y dirección en la represión de la posguerra.
