Since Franco's death in 1975, Spain has undergone an extraordinary transformation, developing from an authoritarian regime to a self-confident and consolidated democracy. After decades of international isolations, Spain is rapidly emerging as an influential participant in international political, economic, and security issues. Spain has also experienced a remarkable economic transformation, privatizing industries, raising living standards, and attaining membership in the European Community. The New Spain focuses on the countrys progress toward democracy and examines the manifold political, economic and social challenges with which Spain continues to grapple. The book concludes with an analysis of the countys agenda for ht e29990s and the dilemmas facing Felipe Gonzalez in his fourth term as prime minister. The lessons learned from Spains transition to democracy have broad international implications. The New Spain will be of interest to students of the political and economic changes taking place in Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, and Latin America, as well as those concerned with Spains future role within the European Community.
