Spain and the World is the name of an anarchist publication initiated in response to the Spanish Civil War and the struggles of the CNT-FAI. In Britain, the Freedom Paper had begun to peter-out and the fortnightly publication, Spain and the World had been started by Dr Galasso and Vernon Richards to compete with News Chronicle and New Statesman who were supportive of Soviet policy.[1] "After the first issue, Spain and the World became a Freedom Press publication, with Tom Keell and Lilian Wolfe" according to Rooum.[2]

Briefly, Spain and the World would become Revolt!, and then finally War Commentary before returning to the publication of the Freedom Paper.
