From Dictatorship to Democracy: Spanish Reportage discusses the problems of contemporary Spain and deals with the 'Spanish miracle'- the country's gradual peaceful transition from fascist dictatorship to democracy. The book is structured based on a chronological order of presenting facts. The text begins with a description of Spain during Franco's times. Spain is then described '30 years after' the civil war of1936-1939. The book is concluded with an account of events connected with the victory of the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party. The various 'storeys' of Spanish society that played a special role in the country's political evolution are also shown.
