The State Of Spain During The Early Years Of The 20th Century Can Be S
The state of Spain during the early years of the 20th century can be said to have been a state of great unease. Spain was one of the first powers to loose her imperial influence, the state was politically unstable, industrially weak and had suffered some humiliating defeats. It can be said that these were the main causes that lead to the great instability of Spain during the Civil war and post civil war periods. Left-winged radicalism and nationalistic movements, such as the Catalan movement
