"... [the author] contributes an exciting dimension by reconstructing the experience of one of the distinguished Spanish liberals of the period." (Prof. Eugenio Federico Biagini Sidney Sussex College) "... [this book] provides extra academic knowledge to the backgrounds of the second largest Spanish liberal exile in England." (Prof. Jose Luis Ollero Valles The Institute of "La Laboral")"From the Publisher:
This is a historical reconstruction of the political life and correspondence of the exiled nineteenth-century Spanish liberal, Ramon Aleson Alonso de Tejada. This book is an important contribution to the history of Spanish Liberalism, and the study of the exile communities of nineteenth century Europe, detailing the political encounters and exchanges which were generated. Many exiles left their countries in the aftermath of failed uprisings, when attempts to establish forms of representative government for national independence resulted in reactionary backlash. Their preferred destination was the United Kingdom, settling in London. London was a cosmopolitan metropolis, famous for its toleration and openness to new ideas. Recently, we have achieved a better grasp of the political vision of these exiled refugees. This publication contributes a detailed dimension to this story, by reconstructing the experience of one distinguished Spanish liberal, Ramon Aleson. Aleson was an Anglophile, and keen student of the British system of representative government. At the time of his arrival in 1823, Britain was an oasis of 'Liberalism'. The United Kingdom's representative government and Parliamentary tradition had survived unscathed through the revolutionary upheavals which had devastated Europe.
