ABSTRACT
This article examines the changes in society, economic and politics in Spain. Currently, Spaniards do not talk much about Francisco Franco, the dictator who ruled their country from 1936 until his death in 1975. But it is inevitable that in the future Franco will be remembered by Spaniards as national hero. The present democracy and modernization being experienced by the country is a legacy of Franco's regime.
