In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

xi Acknowledgments I would like to thank the National Endowment for the Humanities and Wake Forest University for sponsoring my research for this book. I am grateful to Sally Barbour, Julie Edelson, Candelas Gala, Antonio Gómez López Quiñones , Sol Miguel-​ Prendes, and Gayle Rogers for their encouragement, support, and insightful comments. I am thankful for the kind assistance that I received in Seville from the staff of the Centro de Estudios Andaluces, the Archivo General de Andalucía, the Museo de la Autonomía de Andalucía, the Hemeroteca Municipal, and the Biblioteca Blas Infante, in particular Ana Borrego, Paloma Cano Sánchez, Carlos Font Gavira, María Ángeles García Molinera, Vanessa Tellado, and Ana Vicente.

The largest debt of gratitude is, as always, owed to my family, without whose support this book would not have been written.
