The collection contains 394 titles, including newspapers, magazines, bulletins, newsletters, and journals documenting the Spanish Civil War. Titles are dated as early as 1923 and as late as 2009, with the bulk of the collection being published during the war years, 1936-1939.
The publications originate in Spain, various European and World nations, and the United States, and they detail the politics, economics, and military and social effects and policies of the Spanish Civil War on Spain and the international community. Many of the publications are the official journals or newsletters of particular political or military groups, and thus offer focused insights into numerous sides of the conflict. In addition, later publications offer perspective on the continued memory of the war in Spain, in veterans’ collective consciousness, and abroad. Authors include numerous unknowns as well as notables such as Jef Last, Leon Trotsky, Ed DeNeve (Willem Johan Marie “Jean” Lenglet), Nico Rost, Jacques Bardoux, and Antonio Machado.
