A full detailed and readable account of Spain's disastrous was of 1898 ... and of the political and social crisis that followed. ( British Bulletin of Publications.)

These long-term political, social and economic reverberations of the Spanish loss of empire are the subject of Sebastian Balfour's stylish and sophisticated begins with a superbly wide-ranging account of the war of 1898 and its origins. ( Times Literary Supplement)

Not a mere compilation of secondary opinions but rather a well-researched interpretative piece. Balfour provides an insightful and detailed analysis of what he considers were the main 'centrifugal impulses' that contributed to the disintegration of the Restoration... Balfour has written a remarkable analytical book that will become a basic reference for those interested in the history of Spain and Europe in the first third of the twentieth century. ( Jesus Cruz, Journal of Modern History, Vol.71 No.4)

elegantly written study ... Based on a wealth of primary sources, this is a splendid - as well as beautifully produced - study. ( Paul Heywood, University of Nottingham, LSE Magazine, Summer 1997)

a compelling, readable and scholarly account of what was simply called The Disaster ... A must for historians of Spain and students of imperialism. ( The Spectator)


"All college and university libraries supporting programs in modern European history should buy this book."--Choice
