Descripción de la editorial

On September 11, 2012, on Catalonia’s National Day, 1.5 million people from all over Catalonia marched peacefully and joyfully through the streets of Barcelona, behind a single placard: Catalonia: New State in Europe. Fifteen days later, President Artur Mas called snap elections for the Parliament of Catalonia, in order to hold a referendum that would let the people of Catalonia decide their own future. The rest of the world and even Spain were caught by surprise, but the events unfolding in Barcelona have been a long time coming.


In this new book, 35 experts explore Catalonia’s history, economics, politics, language, and culture, in order to explain to the rest of the world the fascinating story behind the march, the new legislature, and the upcoming vote on whether Catalonia will become the next new state in Europe.

Molt recomanable llibre amb cadascuna de les visions polièdriques dels autors amb denominador comú únic: explicar les raons i el perquè de l'actual procés polític i social.

You must read before (or after) visiting Barcelona

An inevitable topic of conversation that would crop up during your stay in Barcelona would be Catalan national identity and how the region as a whole fit into Spain - sometimes this might not be a very comfortable conversation. This book does an excellent job in giving the reader an understanding of the historical Catalonia-Spain relationship. The reader is given a somewhat narrow lense to interpret what is happening today and may happen in the short future to Catalonia.
This is well worth a read before (or after) visiting Barcelona.
