Summary "Ludger Mees offers a comprehensive study of one of Europe's most protected ethnic conflicts. He draws on his own field research as well as extensively evaluating the findings of historians and social scientists. The main objective of the book is to offer a well-balanced presentation of both the principal insights concerning the Basque conflict and theoretical reflections for the reader with more comparative interest in the issues of violence, nationalism and democracy."--BOOK JACKET.
