The Development of Modern Spain is a rigorous quantitative and analytical study (yet accessible) of the economic history of Spain, from an agricultural, backward economy to one of the 10 most industrialized countries at the death of Franco. Moreover, Gabriel Tortella emphasizes the role of human capital and lists lessons extracted from Spanish economic history to apply in current developing nations. It’s the most authoritative book on this subject translated into English.
