The Spanish Civil War captured the imaginations of writers and readers around the world. !No Pasaran! collects thirty-eight of the most vivid, poignant stories to come out of the conflict, by writers from across the political, geographical and artistic spectrum. The writers include celebrated international figures such as Jean-Paul Sartre, Leonardo Sciascia and Victor Serge and well known British and American observers such as George Orwell, Gamel Woolsey, Langston Hughes and Muriel Rukeyser. Uniquely, where previous collections privileged the writings of the International Brigades, !No Pasaran! draws most heavily on writers from Spain itself - including Merce Rodoreda, Javier Cercas and Luis Bunuel. !No Pasaran! is the essential anthology of Spain's Civil War writing, and allows the reader to witness life and death, hope and despair at the front lines of one of the century's most bitter wars.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In this superb, shattering book of testimonies, Pete Ayrton has organised the best of all introductions to the Spanish Civil War -- Neal Ascherson
These pieces bring home the visceral nature of the Spanish conflict, a clash of ideologies that defined a generation and continues to reverberate today * New Internationalist *
With every page the reader learns and appreciates more, with deeper insight than previously, about the true nature of the war * Morning Star *
!No Pasaran! evokes to perfection this most 'impossible' of wars - only through such outstanding writing can we understand what these wars really meant, and cost -- Helen Graham, author of The Spanish Civil War: A Very Short Introduction
With a judicious mixture of famous and recondite pieces, admirably translated by a well selected team, the editor offers a touching blend of humour and pathos, reality and artifice * Times Literary Supplement *
