This timely book captures the complexity and humanity of one of the most agonizing of contemporary problems -- that of terrorist violence. Basque Violence is in fact a pioneering attempt to give a fully contextualized cultural account of the endemic conflict engaging Basque villagers both as protagonists and as spectators. Using the tools of cultural anthropology, Joseba Zulaika provides the first ethnographic analysis of this politically explosive situation.
