Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Ellwood (research analyst for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, London) analyzes the special circumstances in Spain that made Franco's long-enduring career as autocratic Head of State possible. Set in the context of the social, economic and political evolution of 20th Century Spain, she looks at the personal characteristics that enabled him to take advantage of those circumstances despite his not being a prepossessing or charismatic figure, nor a leader with a ready-made power base. Topics include how Franco rose to such power; what use he made of it; what the formative influences on him were; and whether he had a consistent vision for Spain and if so, how far he was able to realize it. Reprint of the 1994 edition. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
