Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a book about the role of culture in social change and the transition to democracy of post-Franco Spain. Since General Franco's death in 1975, Spanish political life has seen an extraordinarily quiescent "period of consensus," unique in its own history. Laura Desfor Edles takes a distinctively culturalist approach to this "strategy of consensus" and institutionalization of democracy, and uncovers the processes of symbolization and ritualization that characterize it.

Synopsis:

Examines the role of culture in social change and Spanish democratisation post-Franco.

Synopsis:

Laura Desfor Edles takes a distinctively culturalist approach to Spain's transition to democracy after Franco.
