   schema:reviewBody ""This book unravels the debate about the Spanish nation and its identity in the new democracy. It is both a historical debate and a contemporary political problem and has been particularly complex owing to the legacy of the Francoist dictatorship, which deeply eroded the legitimacy of Spanish nationalism." "The Reinvention of Spain examines the ways in which Spanish and regional identities are projected and how they influence the external actions of the Spanish state. It also analyses the dynamic of comparative grievances and competition between regions deriving from the peculiar architecture of the state in Spain, and their effect on social and political cohesion. Finally, it examines scenarios of change that might foster solutions but asserts that Spain will continue to reinvent itself."--BOOK JACKET." ;
