Glas analyzes the rapid economic growth of Spain’s Bilbao region in the context of its massive exportation of iron ore to Great Britain between 1875 and 1899. Focusing on the mining boom and the opportunities it created for Bilbao businessmen, the author establishes a broad chronological and analytical framework that combines economic history with social, cultural, and political analysis to account for the industrialization of Vizcaya and the success of local entrepreneurs.
