"Conversi knows Spain, and he also knows the sociological, historical, and political science literature on nationalism. Studies of west European politics, ethnicity, and nationalism, and most importantly the politics of language will find this a remarkable and supremely useful book." —Catalan Review
"This is an analysis steeped in historical understanding, rich in sociological insight, and sensitive to political nuance. It is essential reading for all students of nationalism and politics, as well as for anyone interested in modern European developments."
—London School of Economics
"The Basques, the Catalans, and Spain contains expert analysis and is highly readable . . . a splendidly written and organized study of Basque and Catalan nationalism which will become an obligatory part of any reading list on the subject."
