First published in 1936, Behind the Spanish Barricades chronicles the early months of the Spanish Civil War through the eyes of John Langdon-Davies, a seasoned journalist who was already well acquainted with Spanish and Catalan cultures. Having crossed the border on a second-hand motorbike, he experiences the exuberant atmosphere in Barcelona during its short-lived proletarian revolution. He also witnesses the horrors of war as he visits Toledo during the siege of the Alc zar, and tries to explain the background to the conflict through a series of interviews with individuals of various political persuasions.

This edition is closely based on the original 1936 volume and includes an introduction by the historian Paul Preston.
