This bibliography is the first attempt to establish a comprehensive list of secondary material relating to the Spanish Civil War in literature, film, and art. It includes books, articles, and chapters in a wide range of languages, including Spanish, English, Russian, French, German, and Italian.
Monteath begins the work with an introductory essay surveying the breadth of the scholarship on the cultural manifestations of the war, which he places in its broader cultural-historical context. The bibliography is organized alphabetically within sections devoted to literature, film, and art, and a general subject index completes the work. Anyone interested in the fiction of Hemingway, the film of Ivens, the art of Picasso, and many of the key figures in Western culture of the 1930s will find this work of value.

Included items come in a range of European languages, including English, Spanish, French, German and Italian.

It is certainly an impressive work and will be most useful to researchers wishing to identify the literature in this specialized field.
