9780140131918: The New Spaniards (Penguin politics & political affairs)

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.

Review:

Hooper . . . not only knows where Spain has been in recent decades and centuries, but he also has an impressively authoritative view of where exactly it is today and where it is headed. ("The Washington Post")

Unputdownable . . . A must for anyone . . . who wants to know what Spain is really like. ( New Statesman, London)
