    From the introduction:

    "Spain has bounced back from its Euro debt crisis, although high unemployment and political scandal still loom large. Now, in the capital, for all the establishments that pulled down their shutters, there is no lack of hip restaurants, bars and clubs replacing them. The arts scene continues to innovate, driven by a youthful avant-garde, leading to talk of a second Movida Madrileña. It is this indomitable spirit – and, yes, low prices – that pulls in tourists in droves, and designer digs are opening in every district. However, Madrid has never been a city that feels as if its culture is being stifled by a foreign invasion. For behind its imperial facade is a vibrant metropolis."
