Catalonia Separate? Feb. 8 2013
By gtr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought this book when I recently returned from Barcelona. Why do Catalonians want to separate from Spain? To me it seemed like a very bad idea as they are doing very well as they are and separating cannot possibly be economically viable in the long term. After reading this book, I felt I understood why they want to separate. It still doesn't seem like a good idea to me, but at least I feel I understand the issues a bit better. I wish I'd read it BEFORE I went to Barcelona. The book was a bit repetitive but easy to read in sections over a long period of time. You didn't need to remember one section in order to read the next. The people interviewed were highly intelligent and articulate. If only the politicians were as capable as the people interviewed for this book, there would be some hope for Spain AND Catalonia.

An Important Book for English-Speakers Oct. 11 2012
By Roger Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an extremely useful book, presenting a variety of viewpoints concerning the role of Catalonia in the world -- in the form of interviews with leaders in various cultural areas: politics, sports, economics, literature, etc. They don't all agree on every point (notably in their degree of optimism), but a critical mass of evidence is built up supporting the importance of Catalonia far beyond the borders of that possible "new state of Europe."

A must-read if you're interested in Catalan issues June 14 2012
By MS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Unfortunately, there is a dearth of information from a Catalan perspective about contemporary Catalan politics in English - until this book. It is a series of interviews with most of Catalunya's political and cultural movers and shakers, and gives a deep and nuanced perspective on the debate for Catalan independence, the Barcelona-Madrid power dynamic, and internal Catalan politics. Definitely a must-read for interested anglophones.

Barcelona is more than a city, it's a Capitol in it's own right Dec 21 2012
By Stella Mather - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Important background on why Catalan has an independence movement, especially reminding the World that Franco and the fascists fought a Republic based in Barcelona and have punished them ever since. This is not impartial, but it is very persuasive.
