James Jacob s book, "Hills of Conflict," fills an enormous void in the abundant literature of contemporary ethnic nationalist movements turned violent. For years, scholars, policy makers, and others interested in ethnic struggles in industrialized societies have been hampered by the scarcity and inaccessibility of information about one of Europe s most significant cases: The Basques of France. No longer is this the case. Professor Jacob s book not only meticulously records the historical development of French Basque nationalism, but places it in the context of armed struggle for ethnic goals as well. Robert P.

Reseña del editor:

This text offers a detailed analysis of the history of Basque nationalism in France from the Ancien Regime to the present day. The Basques are descended from one of the indigenous tribes of Europe, and their homeland was defined prior to the creation of the modern state system and its borders. This book examines the relationship between the Basques and the growing encroachment of the French state. Using interviews, personal letters, diaries, and unpublished archives, Jacob charts the evolution of Basque political resistance - localism, provincialism, clericalism, regionalism, and ethnic nationalism - and shows how the Basques have challenged the dominant ideology at each juncture of French history. In the years following World War II, this resistance gave rise to the expression of Basque nationalism and, later, terrorism. Jacob examines some of the major influences on the French Basque movement including the nature of French politics and administration, the role of the Catholic Church, and the parallel growth of the Spanish Basque terrorist movement (ETA) in Spain.
