This study reviews the historical development of the Spanish Communist Party, describing its role during the Spanish Civil War and its opposition to the autocratic Franco regime which followed. The study also analyzes the party's role in the domestic politics of emerging, post- Franco Spain as well as its role in the developing contemporary phenomenon called Eurocommunism. Employing a levels of analysis model as an analytical framework, the study concludes that the Spanish Communist Party has, in its very short period of legal existence, begun to demonstrate that it is a viable and dynamic force, both in Spanish politics as well as the international communist movement, of which policy-makers in both arenas should take serious notice.
