Abstract

During the Civil War and the post-war early years there was an intense debate between the different sectors of the raised faction about the form and the characteristics that the New State under construction should have. A sector of the radical falangism got politically organized around Ramón Serrano Suñer, and threw an ideological, cultural, and political offensive to deepen in the fascist orientation of Franco's regime. The Escorial journal was one of the instruments used by this group to push forward its political project. The present study analyzes this political-cultural experience and discusses some dominant historiographic theses in relation to the characteristics of the strong fight for the political hegemony that was carried out during these years in the core of Franco's dictatorship.
