ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the role and the influence of Spanish General Francisco Franco and his policies in the political developments and international cooperation of Spain. The article begins with a description of social and economic conditions of Madrid in the period during and before it was surrendered to Franco. The recent history of Spain has given little hope that the democratic disciplines as practised in the Great Britain or the United States would have much chance of success. The difference between the Spain of 951 and the Spain of 1958 is because of the expansion in apartment construction, the new factories, the degree of improvement in roads and even in rail networks that was achieved with the monetary help taken from the United States.
