This dissertation is the complex and persevering achievement of the Ph.D already old scholar that is presenting it, as an attentive look to the Contents shows. My aim has been always doing a Historical Sociology of the First Carlista War (1833- 1839/41) in a comparative frame. After testing different possibilities and doing a long way research, writing and rewriting different parts of it -publishing some of them in between-, the final object of the investigation is the one I am explaining and discussign here. The First Part is a comparative study of the European context from the point of view of three large processes -State Formation, Collective Action / Revolutionary Situations, and Capitalism Development-, in order of framing and characterize the Spanish Revolution and Counterrevolution from 1808 to 1868. Echoing the Sociological and Historical debates around the matters I am interested in, I has followed, prominently, Charles Tilly and Randall Collins insights, besides the magistery of my teacher and dissertation director José Álvarez Junco. In developing this part, chapter 1 is dedicated to explore the historical trayectories of Great Britain, France, the Netherlands and the Iberian Peninsula in comparison -for doing that easier and clear to the potential reader, I elaborated four Tables of Proceses divided in chronological segments, wchich are included in Volume II as Appendix 1 (I to IV). I followed with a brief history of the Spanish Liberal revolution through the examination of its constitutional texts and electoral processes, which were implemented -in its typical erratic manner- toward the creation of a powerful state in a capitalist and democratic society. All of these changes were accompanied hand by hand with a repertoire of contentious collective action similar to the rest of Europe but in a different timing, and its counted for the results. As a matter of fact, the longer preservation of the Spaniard Politics tradition -as I explained it in chapter 2- with its Counterreformation links and supported by an imperial Hispanic or Catholic Monarchy (Trastámara, Spaniard Habsburgs or Borbon), made difficult and singular the entrance in socioeconomic as well as political Modernity. The profundity of the cleavage between this Tradition and the revolutionary reforms of the Liberal govertments had many dimensions and was of huge proportion. The Spanish Counterrrevolution -from Royalist revolts to the Carlist war and beyond- was similar to the French -with the Vendée wars and the Chouanneries-, or the Britain's Jacobite's, but with a much more endurance in time and a more powerful influence upon the political life -with the dominance of patronage and clientelism well into the 20th Century, for instance-...
