Professor José Antonio Sanchez Roman, Universidad Complutense de Madrid


Jose Antonio Sanchez Roman is Fulbright Visiting Fellow at the History Department. He is Associate Professor of Modern History at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain). His last book was a history of taxation in twentieth-century Argentina published by Palgrave.
