This aim of this book is to show the long run origin of the Europeanism as a movement in Spain and to underline how Spain during the transition to democracy bet on its own European future within the EEC Institutions because it has already matured a long tradition and a very well developed knowledge of the European mechanism at least from the Sixties. The book is divided into three chapters. The first one describes the Spanish foreign policy in particular from the late Fifties to the late Seventies and it explains which was the meaning the regime assigned to the Europeanization of Spain. I underline the specific economic value tribute to Europeanism by the majority of the political family of the regime, but I also reproduce the internal debate explaining which political families sustain the European model who do not , and why. In the second chapter I analize the meaning of Europeanism for the moderate opposition to the regime. I explain how it was linked to democratic values and to the plan to overtrow the dictatorship. I also show how under the umbrella of Europeanism a fragmentated opposition found a shared starting point to overcome the dictatorship and then it became less vulnerable. In the third and latest chapter I analyze how the Europeanism of the previous decades influenced the political parties foreign policy guidelines, and why every single party in the parliament even with different reasons behind it was in favour of the Spanish EEC integration as soon as it was possible. I also explain how every single party interpreted this measure as a confirmation of an external support and legitimization of the Spanish transition to democracy.
