Abstract: Special issue published on-line by El Mundo. El blanco y negro de las fotografías de hace un cuarto de siglo ha dejado paso al color. Y no sólo en el papel amarillento de las fotos. Porque la década de los 70 jamás logrará desprenderse de ese aire grisáceo que le otorga la memoria colectiva. Es bueno, de vez en cuando —aprovechando conmemoraciones y aniversarios, o simplemente repasando el álbum familiar— echar la vista atrás y recordar cómo éramos y cómo somos los españoles que vivimos el terremoto político y social que supuso la muerte de Franco y la posterior transición política. En este especial hacemos un repaso a algunos de los protagonistas y a los elementos cotidianos de la vida en los 70.
The Spanish transition from Franco to Democracy by Carlo Andreoli. Available at: http://vespito.net/historia/
This page attempts to offer a documented and contrasted vision of all the historical process that permitted the installation of the Democracy in Spain.
Contemporary Spanish Cultural History . Also at http://huizen.dds.nl/~jaoskam/indexes.htm
Abstract: As a result of the ambiguous character of Spain's transition to democracy, many of the effects --and responsibilities-- of cultural repression have remained concealed. This has led to mythifications and the appearance of «false heroes», but most of all, the cultural damage that Francoism caused is often underestimated or sometimes even ridiculed. The effectiveness and penetration of the Francoist control instruments was such, that by neglecting or ignoring them we would fail to understand the rise of opposition movements and, therefore, important aspects of today's culture.
