Spanish Political Parties offers an up-to-date guide to contemporary Spanish politics and provides key documentary extracts where appropriate so that readers may examine the issues themselves. This volume provides a comprehensive introduction to the Spanish political system and the present state of the parties, while also dealing with Spanish politics in its historical context. Individual chapters deal with the party system, national parties such as the PSOE and the Partido Popular, and parties at the level of the Autonomous Communities. The regional and nationalist parties with the Autonomous Communities are dealt with in chapters on Euskadi, Galicia and Catalonia. Brief biographies are given of the most important party leaders. The documentary sources are fully annotated and aim to stimulate critical analysis of the principal ideas and policies of each party. This volume satisfies the need for an authoritative guide with key original source texts for all courses on contemporary Spain and Spanish politics at sixth-form and University level.
