The book examines the Paracuellos massacres in Spain in November 1936. The interpretation of events has always been a subject of controversy and Dr Ruiz demonstrates the complicity of the Republican government in the worst left-wing atrocity of the Spanish Civil War. 

The English version will be published next year by Sussex Academic Press.
