Description: In 1959 a small group of young men in the Basque city of Bilbao founded the organisation Euskadi ta Askatasuna (ETA – Basque Homeland and Freedom), which was to have an enormous impact on Basque and Spanish politics and society from the late 1960s to the present day. A fascination with ETA’s commitment to armed struggle as the principal strategy for attaining independence for the Basque country,1 as well as the organisation’s seemingly endless ability to regenerate itself in the face of ongoing police repression and diminishing popular support, have made ETA the focus of ongoing popular and academic interest. The growing bewilderment of outsiders (and indeed of many Basques) over ETA’s continued existence thirty years after the death of General Franco in 1975 and Spain’s subsequent transition to liberal democracy, has increased rather than diminished this interest
