Between 1936 and 1939 Spain was caught in the dual throes of profound social revolution and brutal civil war. When the dust finally cleared, few could imagine that General Francisco Franco's victory over a short-lived Republican government would lead to a dictatorship that would endure for nearly four decades. It wasn't until his death in 1975 that Spain would usher in an era of modern democratic rule. How does one account for the longevity of Franco's regime?

Fear and Progress: Ordinary Lives in Franco's Spain: 1939-1975 rejects traditional explanations of consensus or repression as broad oversimplifications. Separating myth from the reality of Franco's legacy, this compelling new text recounts the vivid memories and traumatic experiences of Spanish citizens who lived, suffered, and died, during the Franco dictatorship. Hundreds of confidential government documents reveal stunning insights into life during the early years of the Franco era: how political violence and repression were experienced; how the dictatorship exploited illusions of peace and prosperity for its own benefit; and how the regime's legacy was manipulated. Also explored are the social costs of political decisions to ordinary Spaniards and the exodus that was responsible for the decline of rural Spain's traditional way of life.

Fear and Progress is an enlightening journey through the 40 years of turmoil and strife that shaped modern Spain.
