Abstract

Examining the social, medical and cultural history of male homosexuality in Spain, this book looks at it from the time homosexuality came to be an issue of medical, legal and cultural concern. Research into homosexuality in Spain is in its infancy. The last ten or fifteen years have seen a proliferation of studies on gender in Spain but much of this work has concentrated on women's history, literature and femininity. In contrast to existing research which concentrates on literature and literary figures, "Los Invisibles" focuses on the change in cultural representation of same-sex activity of through medicalisation, social and political anxieties about race and the late emergence of homosexual sub-cultures in the last quarter of the twentieth century. As such, this book constitutes an analysis of discourses and ideas from a social history and medical history position. Much of the research for the book was supported by a grant from the Wellcome Trust to research the medicalisation of homosexuality in Spain.

Abstract

Never before have all twenty-nine illustrated copies of the Beatus Commentaries on the Apocalypse been brought together for comparative analysis in a single volume. John Williams, renowned expert on the Commentaries, offers here his updated considerations on the material, revising and summing up a lifetime of study on these strikingly illuminated manuscripts. Dating from the early to central Middle Ages, the Spanish phenomenon of the Commentary on the Apocalypse responded to differing monastic needs within the shifting context of the Middle Ages. The volume also presents an in-depth study of the recently discovered Geneva Beatus. One of only three Commentaries written outside the Iberian Peninsula, this manuscript closely follows a Spanish model but was written in a Beneventan script and painted in a style dramatically different from the original.

Abstract

This volume represents the natural development of the theoretical conclusions which the author arrived at in a previous publication, devoted to the passage from the mandate prohibition to the party mandate. The analysis of the provisions present in the Spanish system as regards parties and Parliamentary groups, and in particular those aimed at countering the phenomenon of Parliamentary transfuguismo or switching, effectively confirms that it is possible to draw from the traditional principles on political representation meanings that better fit the peculiar role that the parties play within the current representative democracies, without undermining their foundations. Hence the necessity to define solutions of various kinds - constitutional, legislative, regulatory, conventional - designed to guarantee that the elected member respects the party mandate received from the voters.

Abstract

The iberisms are connected to a central issue in political and historical reflection in European 19th and 20th centuries: how can a nation be defined? Which viability and future possibilities could it have? Is it pertinent to interpret them as expressions of a nationalism that gave rise to the unification of Italy and Germany? The concepts of Iberism and Hispanism (pan-hispanism, hispano-Americanism, ibero-Americanism, etc.) acquired diverse meanings depending on the historical conjunctures. They generated expectations of future, but also they brought about resistances. They were not able to mobilize popular groups in Portugal, and also in Spain, and never succeeded in organizing political movements with consistent action programs. However, they raised wide public reactions and encouraged the political communication between Portuguese and Spanish, feeding a live European transnational debate. Based in a broad research, we develop an integrated approach that takes into account the study of the actors involved and reviews the place of iberisms in political and historical peninsular cultures in a chronology that goes from the period of French occupation to the establishment of dictatorships in the 30’s..

Abstract

Esta obra indaga en la aportación de la historiografía como género propio a la construcción ideológica y cultural de los nacionalismos de estado. La autora se ocupa del periodo cronológico que abarca entre 1843 y 1868, y lo hace persiguiendo dilucidar este asunto a través de la obra producida en las cátedras de diversas disciplinas humanísticas existentes en la Universidad de Madrid a mediados del siglo XIX. En concreto, la indagación se conduce hacia un plano sin duda interesante, el del orientalismo español, que antes se había ignorado casi del todo para esa misma época, iniciando con ello la exploración intensa de datos y experiencias culturales cruzadas —deliberadamente selectos unos y no homogéneas otras—, para tentar el contraste de interpretaciones y, acaso más, atreverse a un principio de reformulación.

Abstract

Fernando Cadalso and Manzano (1859-1939) was one of the most important Spanish criminal lawyers of the first half of the 20th century. He had a long and prolific career in the prisons field: director of several prisons (The Model Prison of Madrid, amongst others); General Surveyor of Prisons during twenty five years (the third most important position, under the Minister of Grace and Justice and the General Director); representative of Spain in four international prison congresses; he established the progressive system in prisons, which lasted until the sanction of the Prison General Organic Law in 1979; he carried out field trips in several European nations and in the United States of America, from which he imported the model of the reformatory for adults established in Ocaña (province of Toledo); he collaborated in the bill of probation; he was the Head of the Criminology School; and his resume still goes on. Shortly before retirement, during Primo de Rivera’s Military Directory, he was in charge of the Ministry of Grace and Justice. Throughout his life, Cadalso attempted to raise awareness both in society and public authorities on the importance of the prison reform, the welfare of prison populations (by means of work, education and religion), and the enhancement of corps of prisons officers (labor stability, wages increase, entry by competitive examination, seniority promotion). He promoted this task in four fields: 1) Administrative: through his performance in the prisons field; 2) Intellectual: writing in scientific magazines and newspapers, creating his own Prisons Magazine and publishing several papers; 3) Social: he dictated conferences in union and cultural centers and created and participated in several organizations – Association for Prison Studies and Rehabilitation of Offenders, Social Reform Institution, Assistance Commission to Alienates, etc. Finally, 4) Political: through the links established with the ruling elite –specially with Eduardo Dato Iradier and Julián García San Miguel, Marqués de Teverga-. Notwithstanding the huge work carried out during half a century to reform the Spanish prison system, Cadalso’s figure has not been studied in depth by the law and social historiography. Therefore, this biographical work attempts to reconstruct his track in the Spanish prison administration, by means of file documentation never searched before and edited sources barely used, taking into account: 1) The transformations and contradictions in his practice and thinking; 2) The ideas taken from the Italian criminal positivism; 3) His field trips and his attendance to international scientific meetings; 4) His proposals in matters such as the anarchism problem, police reforms, identification of offenders, etc.; 5) His commitment almost solitarily to the U.S. prison model; 6) Creation of institutions: the reformatory for adults in Ocaña, Alicante and Segovia, the progressive system, probation; and finally 7) His genuine contribution and his legacy to the Spanish prison system. We hope this work may allow reconstructing the prison law culture during the period covering from the Restoration to the Second Republic (paramount period, barely approached by the law and social historiography) and de-constructing some tales firmly grounded, particularly that relating the practice of prison reforms with the installation of progressive governments (First and Second Republic) and, on the contrary, deterioration of the prison population with the arrival of conservative administrations to the power during the reign of Alfonso XIII and Primo de Rivera’s Military Directory).________________________________________Fernando Cadalso y Manzano (1859-1939) fue uno de los penitenciaristas españoles más importantes de la primera mitad del siglo XX. Tuvo una larga y prolífica carrera en el Ramo de Prisiones: dirigió varios presidios (entre otros, la Cárcel Modelo de Madrid); fue Inspector General de Prisiones durante veinticinco años (tercer cargo en importancia, debajo del Ministro de Gracia y Justicia y el Director General del ramo); representante de España en cuatro congresos penitenciarios internacionales; estableció el sistema progresivo en las prisiones, que perduró hasta la sanción de la Ley Orgánica General Penitenciaria en 1979; realizó viajes de estudio a varias naciones europeas y a los Estados Unidos, país del que importó el modelo de reformatorio para adultos que estableció en Ocaña (provincia de Toledo); colaboró en la elaboración del proyecto de ley de libertad condicional; fue director de la Escuela de Criminología y un largo etcétera. Poco antes de jubilarse, durante el Directorio Militar de Primo de Rivera, estuvo a cargo del Ministerio de Gracia y Justicia. A lo largo de su vida, Cadalso procuró concientizar a la sociedad y a los poderes públicos sobre la importancia de la reforma penitenciaria, el bienestar de la población reclusa (a partir del trabajo, la educación y la religión) y la mejora de los funcionarios del Cuerpo de Prisiones (estabilidad en el empleo, incremento salarial, acceso por oposición, ascenso por antigüedad). Esta labor la impulsó desde cuatro ámbitos: 1) El administrativo, a partir de su desempeño en el Ramo de Prisiones; 2) El intelectual, escribiendo en revistas científicas y diarios, creando su propia Revista de las Prisiones y publicando numerosas obras; 3) El social, a través del dictado de conferencias en centros obreros y culturales y la creación y participación en diversas entidades -Asociación de Estudios Penitenciarios y Rehabilitación del Delincuente; Instituto de Reformas Sociales; Comisión de Asistencia de Alienados, etc. Finalmente, 4) El ámbito político, a partir de los nexos establecidos con las elites gobernantes -en especial, con Eduardo Dato Iradier y Julián García San Miguel, Marqués de Teverga-. No obstante la enorme labor realizada durante medio siglo para la reforma del sistema penitenciario español, la figura de Cadalso no ha sido estudiada en profundidad por la historiografía jurídica y social. Por ello, este trabajo, de carácter biográfico, pretende -a partir de documentación de archivo nunca antes consultada y fuentes editas escasamente utilizadas- reconstruir su derrotero en la administración penitenciaria española atendiendo a: 1) Las transformaciones y contradicciones en su práctica y pensamiento; 2) La recepción de ideas del positivismo criminológico italiano; 3) Los viajes de estudio y la participación en reuniones científicas internacionales; 4) Sus propuestas en cuestiones como el problema del anarquismo, reformas policiales, identificación de los delincuentes; etc.; 5) Su adhesión, casi en solitario, al modelo de reformatorios norteamericano; 6) La creación de instituciones: reformatorio para adultos en Ocaña, Alicante y Segovia, el sistema progresivo, la libertad condicional; y finalmente 7) Su aporte genuino y su legado para el ordenamiento penitenciario español. Esperamos que este trabajo permita reconstruir la cultura jurídico-penitenciaria del período que abarca de la Restauración a la Segunda República (período fundamental, poco abordado desde la historiografía jurídica y social) y de-construya algunos relatos firmemente establecidos. En especial el que vincula la puesta en práctica de reformas penitenciarias con la instalación de gobiernos progresistas (Primera y Segunda República) y, por el contrario, el deterioro de la población reclusa con la llegada al poder de administraciones conservadoras (Reinado de Alfonso XIII y Directorio Militar de Primo de Rivera).

Abstract

This volume reconstructs with great detail the history and the rapid development of the prestigious research centre, Instituto Antonio de Nebrija de Estudios sobre la Universidad, founded in the late 1980s at Charles III University of Madrid and briefly risen to a truly great international research lab on University and Higher Education History in Spain and in South-American countries. On the basis of a wide range of archival and print sources, the author puts his focus on the most significant moments of the Instituto Antonio de Nebrija de Estudios sobre la Universidad, from its laborious creation in 1997 to the attempt to convert it into a LOU University Institute for Research and its incorporation into the Instituto Figuerola de Historia y Ciencias Sociales in 2009, and he introduces the countless and considerable scientific research activities promoted over the years, without leaving out that seriousness and that methodological rigour which have punctually characterized all the works produced and the initiatives made.
