Sinopsis completa FRANCO LIVES ON y descripción
Preface by Henry Ettinghausen and David Bassa-Epilogue by Toni Strubell
Franco Lives On traces the birth of democracy in Spain in 1978, after forty years under the dictatorship of Francoʼs
It reveals the hidden side of what happened during the Spanish Transition.
This study is the key to understanding the opaque functioning of justice and the inability to engage in dialogue that the political powers in Madrid have shown in recent years in the face of challenges such as the referendum in Catalonia or the disappearance of ETA.
What happened to the ministers of Francoʼs after the arrival of the new Spanish Constitution?
Were they expelled from the corridors of power or did they stay and increase their wealth and political influence?
The answers are to be found in this book, which highlights how the political elite in Spain has lacked the capacity for renewal observed in other European Union states.
The author, Lluc Salellas i Vilar, has done extensive investigative journalism work on the families and individuals who exerted the most influence during the dictatorship and on the role they and their families have continued to play ever since.
