Michael Seidman is professor of history at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington and author of Workers against Work: Labor in Paris and Barcelona during the Popular Fronts.Review:
"Seidman combines a most impressive command of the existing literature on the Spanish Civil War with a highly original emphasis on the ways in which hunger, fear, sex, quality of leadership, quality of supplies (or lack thereof), isolation from friends and family, prospects of victory or defeat, and the struggle for sheer survival affected the morale and the behavior of millions of anonymous participants. At the same time he makes many illuminating analogies with the English and American civil wars and with the revolutionary experiences of France and Russia."—Gabriel Jackson, author of The Spanish Republic and the Civil War
