History and profileEdit

Cuadernos was established in October 1963 by Joaquín Ruiz-Giménez, a former minister of education under Franco.[1][2][3] It was the first current affairs magazine of Spain.[4]

During its initial phase Cuadernos had a Christian democratic political leaning.[2] However, over time it had more democratic and less Christian stance.[2] Then it supported center-left trends and later, it became a socialist publication.[3]

Spanish journalists who favored pluralism in the country contributed to Cuadernos.[5] In the words of Paul Preston, the magazine was, together with Triunfo, one of two "champions of democratic ideals".[1] During the transition to democracy it was one of the major publications focusing on the need for democratic reforms.[6]

Cuadernos ceased publication at the end of 1978.[3]
