This collection of essays by friends and pupils of Sir Raymond Carr explores important issues of authority and legitimacy, providing intriguing insights into Spain's turbulent development throughout the twentieth century. Drawing on the latest research to provide studies of diverse individuals and groups--including generals, bishops, entrepreneurs, rural grandees, Falangists and Socialists, reformers and revolutionaries--the volume provides a cohesive look at the elites who have striven to dominate, exploit, or change the structures of power in modern Spain.

'Rarely ... can a historian have been more deserving of celebration in a work such as that now published by Frances Lannon and Paul Preston on the manner in which different elites have responded to change. Most of the contributors having been his students, the insight and vigour of this work form a fitting tribute to Sir Raymond Carr.' Charles Esdaile, Bulletin of Hispanic Studies, Volume LXIX, Number 3, July 1992 'elegant little Festschrift ... Quality is uniformly high, without a single weak contribution, which is unusual for this kind of volume ... these eight studies comprise a distinctive book that can be strongly recommended for the understanding of the extreme right, the military and the Axis connection during the long history of the Franco regime.' Stanley G. Payne, University of Wisconsin-Madison, European History Quarterly `To a large extent, they [the essays] reflect their respective authors particular specializations, yet they also present a coherent and comprehensive panorama of the period.' Sheelagh Ellwood, History Today `While historical in scope and method, this perceptive volume has something to offer political scientists interested in modern Spain.' Political Studies
