Overview

Escuela de rebeldia by Salvador Segui

Published 20 days after the assassination of its author—upon whose life it is based—this novel narrates the life, loves, and hopes of a young laborer in Catalonia during the first decades of the 20th century. Between 1914 and 1921 the number of laborers murdered in Barcelona by employers reached 523, and in 1923 General Primo de Rivera established a dictatorship and banned the National Federation of Labor, brutally repressing it. This is the setting for this tragic and revealing novel, in which death bears the mark of extreme right-wing gunmen, largely funded by Catalonian businesses. This book is a gripping read as well as an enlightening document on pre-Civil War Spain.

Publicada 20 días después del asesinato de su autor—en cuya vida está basada—esta novela narra la vida, los amores y los anhelos de un joven obrero en la Cataluña de las primeras décadas del siglo XX. Entre 1914 y 1921 el número de obreros asesinados en Barcelona por la patronal ascendió a 523, y en 1923 el general Primo de Rivera estableció la dictadura y prohibió la Confederación Nacional del Trabajo, reprimiéndola ferozmente. En este ambiente se desarrolla la trama de esta trágica y reveladora novela, donde la muerte tiene el sello de los pistoleros de la extrema derecha, pagados en gran parte de la patronal catalana. Este libro es una lectura absorbente al igual que un documento esclarecedor sobre España en los años antes de la Guerra Civil española.
