Francisco Ayala (Granada, 1906 – Madrid, 2009), is a classic name among world literature of the 20th century. His role as a sociologist and essayist is, unfortunately, less known by the general public, despite its considerable value. For this reason, this anthology, edited the year of the centenary of his birth, aims to bring the reader closer to some of his most important essays and sociological articles on current issues or that offer us a clear interpretation on a number of relevant problems.
Doctor of Sociology at the Complutense University of Madrid, Alberto J. Ribes Leiva. was responsible for selecting the texts included in this volume.
