The Press during the Spanish Political Transition (1974-1984): Permanence and Change in Representation of Social Relations.

This thesis examines the representation of social relations in the press during the Spanish Political Transition. My research project provides a novel contribution in this area by analysing in a comparative, systematic and longitudinal way the representations of social and political relationships communicated by the press. This study demonstrates that these representations of the public opinion in the Spanish Political Transition lead to the legitimisation of the hegemonic control of politicians, media elites and the upper class, reducing the citizenry to the limited and passive role of spectators.
