What happens to a country when one person makes all the rules? What would it feel like to live in such a place? And why is it important for us to know about?This book, first written in Spain soon after the end of the Franco dictatorship, set out to explain dictatorship to the next generation. The authors believed, as the Spanish publishers of this book put it, that “Children are interested in everything adults are interested in. You must explain things to them, even if it requires effort.”Forty years later, reillustrated with stunning images by Mikel Casal (who himself grew up under Franco’s regime), its message remains as timely as ever.A brilliant introduction to the need for democracy, for readers of all ages, translated by Lawrence Schimel
