Spain - A Political History of the Present - by Raul Zelik

The democratisation of Spain after the end of the Franco dictatorship is considered a European success story. But the economic crisis that began in 2008, the indignado protest movement, Catalan efforts for independence and the corruption scandals of the PP and PSOE have made it clear that Spain's modernization has been much more contradictory.

The 1978 State Pact left the power of the French elite largely untouched. The rapid economic development of the 1990s was based almost exclusively on tourism, construction boom and real estate speculation. Federal and republican reforms that could reduce tensions between the central state and the periphery are hardly possible within the constitutional framework. And finally, a massive reduction in democracy has also been observed in recent years.

Although Spain's economy is improving today, the political crisis continues. This book analyses the causes and presents the main players in the protests of recent years: the indignados, the Left Party Podemos, the municipal citizen lists of Barcelona and Madrid, and the independence movements of Catalonia and the Basque Country.

The author:

Raul Zelik is a political scientist and has been working as a freelance author since 1996. In 2009 he was appointed Professor of International and Comparative Politics at the National University of Colombia, but returned to Germany in 2013 for family reasons. Zelik has been dealing with the political conflicts in Spain since the mid-1980s.

In 2007 he published the widely acclaimed Basque Country novel The Armed Friend (Blumenbar, Berlin); his non-fiction book Continuidad o Ruptura (Capitán Swing, Madrid), which analyses the new social and political movements on the Iberian Peninsula, was also much discussed in Spain. The author closely followed the founding of the Spanish Left Party Podemos and the open municipal lists from 2014 and is regarded as one of the best experts on Spain's nationality conflicts in German-speaking countries.

Press commentary:

Zelik does not present an optimistic book, but a realistic one. It is useful because it summarizes experiences of struggles with their successes and defeats. Future protest movements can learn from this." (SOS).
