Overview

Rodney Gallop's classic work on the Basques is as pertinent and informative today as when it was first published in 1930. The most comprehensive history of the Old World Basques available in English, A Book of the Basques examines the mysterious origins of the Basque people, their long struggle to preserve their racial and cultural identity in the face of repeated invasions over many centuries, and most important, the strength of character that has enabled the Basques to survive. Their complex language, folklore, ancient dances and sports, art, and architecture are also treated with insight.
