This article about the Spanish Civil War and Franco's dictatorship talks very positively about how Spain has moved beyond the horrors of its Civil War. A lot has happened since the article was written in 1998, so our perspectives on these topics may be different today. Still, it's a good introduction the the Spanish Civil War for Americans who may never have had a chance to read anything about that epoch in history. And it may be interesting for Spaniards to see how an American magazine reviewed the war decades afterward.

Uno de los mejores artículos que he leído hasta ahora sobre los antecedentes de la Guerra civil española.
