'... well focused and soundly based ... This is precisely the type of book that has been so seriously lacking in the historiography of contemporary Spain'. History ' ... this important new study is a vital contribution to the contemporary history of Spain and to the history of polarisation and protests in modern Europe'. English Historical Review '... highly challenging and provocative as well as controversial ... This is, without doubt, a convincing and illuminating analysis of popular mobilization, social struggle, and conflict, evolving from the initial consumer and food riots to more organized forms of collective action in a society in transition from elite to mass politics.'
