9781403974402: Catalunya, One Nation, Two States: An Ethnographic Study of Nonviolent Resistance to Assimilation

This book deals with the culture of Catalan resistance to assimilation, through the maintenance of the Catalan language as an expression of identity. This book argues that the Catalans also developed a series of cultural mechanisms to foster identity through intellectual and recreational pursuits, as well as through an emphasis on language.

About the Author:

ALEXANDER ALLAND, Jr., is Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at Columbia University, US.

Review:

"This gracefully written ethnography of two adjacent Catalan towns - one in France and one in Spain - is suffused with the often poignant voices in three languages of people on both sides of the border. Only rarely has an anthropological community study been employed so effectively to shed light on state policies, the politics of language, and macro-level processes of ethnic, regional and national identity formation." - Marc Edelman, Professor of Anthropology, Hunter College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 220 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.5in. x 0.5in.Few historians and fewer lay people know that the first feudal constitution to recognize equality between the burghers and nobles was established in 1150 in Catalunya, sixty-five years before the signing of the Magna Carta in England. In the fifteenth century the Corts of Barcelona (a legislative body) established the principle of a limited monarchy obliged to govern according to laws, while guarding a degree of royal power. These facts lie at the foundation of a culture of nonviolent resistance to assimilation that has been used to combat state power in France and Spain ever since.
