Abstract

The Purpose of this study is to determine the attitudes expressed in The New York Times of January 1, 1936, to July 1, 1937, as compared with those of The London Times of the same dates, regarding three major aspects of the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939. Following a brief account of the historical events of the preceding years, from the beginning of the dictatorship in September, 1923, to the outbreak of the civil war in July, 1936, are the major problems: the causes of the war, the internal affairs of Spain as factors in the conflict, and the international politics involved. In brief, the attitude of The New York Times was liberal and neutral, while The London Times followed Conservative British Government opinion.
