A portrait of a period of Spanish history dominated by the epic struggle of men and women who, in defiance of the Franco regime, fought against crippling economic, political and social conditions which excluded a large part of the population. Nativel Preciado reconstructs the era of Camacho’s unionist struggle and that of other leaders of the workers’ movement who committed their lives and those of their families to their ideals, featuring the memories of Josefina Samper, Marcelino Camacho’s widow, a woman who, like her husband, was fiercely committed to the struggle for democracy.
A serious, rigorous piece of research which combines careful documentation with an exciting real-life story.
There is great interest in contemporary Spanish society in our recent history. An original approach as the description of the situation begins with union activity and its repercussions on the personal lives of the unionists.
The author has an excellent reputation; Nativel Preciado is a wellrespected writer and political commentator.
