Thirty-four researchers analyze social change in what was a significant period for the Spanish economy, including events such as the end of dictatorship and the transition to democracy. At times the focus has to be shifted as far back as the Civil War in an effort to understand the attitudes and behavior of Spanish society today. The research undertaken offers verifiable information on social aspects such as consumerism, drug addiction, national identity, religion, radicalism, youth, the elderly, unemployment, IT, social mobility, etc. It establishes reference points to facilitate the forecasting of future trends. This work was published by the BBV Foundation as one of a number of national profiles presented in the international Comparative Social Cartography Project, which aims to construct a better model than those hitherto available of social change in the modern world.
