Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140131914, Paperback)Over 30 million foreigners travel to Spain every year - more than any other country, yet all but a handful see little of the country besides the holiday costas. This book describes the real Spain that has emerged since the death of Franco, a country of immense industrial and cultural creativity, of police trade unions and wife-swapping bars, a federal monarchy with a tax-paying king, a welfare state in which three-quarters of the unemployed do not qualify for assistance. Unlike many books on Spain, this book eschews politics to focus on the society and how it functions. The book won the Allen Lane Award.

The restoration of democracy in 1977 heralded a period of intense change that continues today. Focussing on issues which affect ordinary Spaniards, from housing to gambling, from changing sexual mores to rising crime rates, this study brings to life the new Spain of the twenty-first century.
