Dr Paco Romero Salvado

Biography

I am a Reader in Modern Spanish History at the Department of Hispanic, Portuguese and Latin American Studies in the Universityof Bristol. I taught before at Queen Mary College, London Metropolitan University and the London School of Economics. My main research interest is the analysis of the social and political origins of the Spanish Civil War. I have written extensively on the transition from elite to mass politics, the post First World War crisis of the Liberal Monarchy, popular protest and praetorian intervention in political society. My recent major publications include The Spanish Civil War: Origins, Course and Outcomes (Basingstoke: Palgrave, 2005), Foundations of the Civil War. Revolution, Social Conflict and Reaction in Spain, 1916–1923 (London: Routledge, 2008) and La Largua Guerra Civil Española del Siglo XX (Granada: Comares, 2011)
