Ghosts of Spain

Travels Through a Country's Hidden Past

Spaniards are reputed to be amongst Europe´s most forthright people. So why have they kept silent about the terrors of their Civil War and the rule of General Franco? This apparent ´pact of forgetting´ inspired writer Giles Tremlett to embark on a journey around Spain and its history. He found the ghosts of Spain everywhere, almost always arguing. Who caused the Civil War? Why do Basque terrorists kill? Why do Catalans hate Madrid? Did the Islamist bombers who killed 190 people in 2004 dream of a return to Spain´s Moorish past? Tremlett´s curiosity led him down some strange and colourful byroads, and brought him unexpected insights into the Spanish character.

Portrait
Giles Tremlett is the Guardian´s Madrid correspondent. He has lived in Spain - and written extensively about the country and its people - almost continuously since graduating from Oxford University thirty years ago. His books include Ghosts of Spain, described as a ´brilliant evocation of Spain . . . vivid and sensitive´ (Spectator) and Catherine of Aragon, which BBC History Magazine called ´Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand Spain.´
