Chapter 5, “Economic Change and the Transformation of Cultural Landscapes,” analyzes the connection between economic change, the alterations that it produces in social landscapes, and the ability of a society to move beyond past conflicts. It reviews economic history and data on the extent of change in both Spain and the United States to reach its conclusions. Industrialization, migration, and urbanization had powerful impacts in both countries, but at different intervals. Foreign investment and the European Community played an important role in Spain. In the United States the New Deal's changes in labor markets and the Civil Rights Movement led to new incentives, economic growth, and new attitudes.
