This thesis explains how and why a popular radical movement developed in Spain during 1808-1844. It shows how this movement was characterised both by the demand that the liberal revolution take on a social agenda, and by the unpopularity of unreconstructed and adventurous elites. The first half (chapters 1 and 2) shows how radical elites appealed to the crowd in a 'vertical' manner, thereby bringing the people into the political process whilst failing to satisfy their grievances. The second half (chapters 3 and 4) shows how the radical crowd became an agent in its own making by calling its leadership to account and asserting its own 'social-liberal' agenda.
