Making Spaniards offers a student-friendly analysis of one the most unexplored yet crucial periods of modern Spanish history: the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera (1923-1930). The book focuses on the official nationalist doctrine developed during the dictatorship and the process of 'nationalization and the masses' undertaken by the state. It argues that the intellectuals of the primorriverista regime outlined the principles of an extreme-right nationalism that eventually became the doctrinal bases of the Franco dictatorship following the Spanish Civil War.

Editorial Reviews

"This book provides a detailed and informative historical evaluation of thevarious attempts of the Primo de Rivera dictatorship to politically indoctrinatethe masses in nationalist values. It is based on in-depth research andmakes good use of primary sources, particularly historical archives, as wellas secondary sources. In doing so, this book makes a valuable contributionto the body of knowledge on the Primo de Rivera dictatorship. By placingthis Spanish case firmly within its European context, moreover, the bookwill be of value not just to students and academics interested in Spanishhistory but also to those more widely interested in the European authoritarianregimes of the 1920s and 1930s."Georgina Blakely, International Journal of Iberian Studies
