During the Spanish transition to democracy, the Communist Party of Spain and the Spanish Socialist Working Party experienced a rapid ideological evolution. However, some of the identity hallmarks that had a strong meaning for their rank-and-file members were left on the way. On the one hand, this paper will try to clarify the national and international factors which explain this evolution. On the other hand, it analyses the contribution of intellectuals of both parties, the passionate involvement of their rank-and-file members, and the role played by the media throughout this process.
