"A good solid history. ... The real–life stories of real–life people are presented and it is to these bread–and–butter issues that historians should be listening." ( Reviews in History, April 2010)
Antonio Cazorla succeeds in capturing the complexity and contradictory character of life in Spain under Franco in a unique way. This book penetrates beneath the surface of politics and government to deal with the lives of ordinary people and helps to open a new perspective on the Franco years.
Stanley Payne, University of Wisconsin–Madison
This is a pathbreaking study of the Franco regime as experienced by ordinary Spaniards. Cazorla Sanchez paints an impassioned portrait of a people subjected to decades of violence who built a propserous society and left fear behind to become citizens and make the most impressive transition to democracy in 20th century Europe.
Adrian Shubert, York University, Canada
