Appeared in Choice on 2011-07-01:
This anthropological analysis of the Basque Nationalist Party (Partido Nacionalista Vasco--PNV) argues culture strongly affects political outcomes. Based on two years (1992-94) of ethnographic research in the Basque town of Tolosa, Vazquez (Upper Iowa Univ.) weaves his observations into the broader context of Basque politics and nationalism, the politics of Spain, and the party systems they share. The book discusses PNV activities in Tolosa, broader PNV organizational and ideological issues, and Spain's transition to democracy, as well as the party's relationship to the origins of Basque nationalism, Basque Homeland and Freedom (ETA)-inspired political violence, other state and nationalist parties, and nonparty political activities and social movements. This is not another study of the origins of Basque nationalism; Vasquez investigates the PNV from the bottom up, describing how individuals and groups mobilize politically, encouraged by opportunity and bounded within repeated associational activity and social networks. This study of the PNV should contribute to the literature on Basque politics and nationalism as well as that on the organization of political parties, especially centrist ones. Readers will learn many descriptive details about Basque nationalism and the PNV, such as the role and myth of its founder, Sabino Arana, and its symbols, agents, and rituals.
