Original title

Los primeros pasos del estado constitucional : historia administrativa de la regencia de María Cristina de Borbón

A masterpiece that goes between the historical and legal. Essential notes to uncover the regency of Maria Christina.

The teacher and doctor in Law, Alejandro Nieto, speaks in this essay on the aspects of Spanish Public Administration in the seven-year rule (1833-1840) of Queen Regent Maria Christina, widow of Ferdinand VII, whilst her daughter, the future Queen Isabella, was a minor.

Those tumultuous years – coinciding exactly with the first Carlist war – were also the timid start of Spain as a constitutional liberal state. Professor Nieto manages to go beyond the initial aim (the study of administrative issues in the period) to write a marvellous essay full of innovative analyses, a revision of old theories and detailed reflection on the period.
