The so-called "Silver-Age" of Spain ran from 1898 to the rise of Franco ub 1939 and was characterized by intense urbanization, widespread class struggle and mobility, and a boom in mass culture. This book offers a close look at on maniddestation of that mass culture: weekly collections of short, often pocket-sized books sold in urban kiosks at low prices. Published in a wide range of genres and formats this series was later censored by the Franco dictatorship for their erotic and anarchist fiction.
