This introduction places the main areas of interest for the book in the wider Spanish and international political and economic context and elaborates its main thesis with reference to the existing literature.The first section situates early Francoism for readers not particularly familiar with the period. The second section discusses the relationship between an autarkic (or self-sufficient) project for the political economy and scientific and technical research. The third section engages with the existing literature on Francoist science and technology and introduces the book's main arguments. The fourth section discusses the literature, both historical and theoretical on territory and state building. There is also a layout of the rest of the chapters.

Keywords:   Redemption, Spain, Franco, Autarky, Science, Technology, Political Economy, State, Territory, Engineering
