[Spain at the Crossroads’s] focus is on public trust, the rule of law and the principle of political accountability. The author’s insightful analysis of Spain’s problems is a framework applicable to many countries, particularly in Latin America.—Arnold Beichman, Washington Times

The most complete English-language account of Spain’s efforts to become a ’normal’ democracy in the post-Franco years. Focusing on the four-term rule of Felipe González’s Socialist Party (1982-1996), the author examines issues such as corruption scandals, Basque and Catalan nationalism, and economic policy with insight and clarity...This compact book provides a surprisingly comprehensive overview of contemporary Spanish affairs.—W. R. Smith, Choice
