The Franco regime was the regime that “disappeared” more people in the second half of the twentieth century than any state other than Cambodia.45 For his services to the Fascist state, Franco awarded Texaco chairman Torkild Rieber the title of Knight of the Grand Cross of the Order of Isabella the Catholic.46 The centrality of domestic corporations in the rapid rise to power of the Italian and German Fascists was excavated as early as 1936 by French scholar Daniel Guerin in his classic account Fascism and Big Business.47 However, Mussolini and Hitler were

, transatlantic, Christian heritage. In 1945, an American Catholic historian by the name of Carlton Hayes drew heavily on Lippmann’s writings in his December address to the American Historical Society in Washington, DC. Hayes had recently been named president of the American Historical Society, in a contentious election that pitted liberals against conservatives. Just before, Hayes had served as US Ambassador to Spain under Roosevelt, and the controversy swirling about him had much to do with his perceived sympathies to the Franco regime. In his keynote

Women have participated, they’ve participated loads. (#12, b. 1947) This story echoes those of other narrators cited in chapter 1, recalling that during the Franco regime women could often pass unnoticed as they carried out illegal political activities, such as prison visits. To this extent the story is archetypal, and depends on the clichéd image of the stupid Spanish police officers who assume ‘old ladies’ cannot be
