Introduction: gender, nationalism and memory

Show Summary Details


This book aims to restore gender to a central position in the history of radical nationalism through a study of women's participation as members and supporters of Euskadi ta Askatasuna (ETA) during the organisation's first two decades (1959 to 1982). In the absence of significant written records of women's participation in radical Basque nationalism, this study also depends on oral history interviews with former activists for evidence of the changing patterns of women's activism in ETA. The interviews explored in the book highlight the importance of feelings of love and happiness, often above anger and hatred, in memories of radical nationalist activists.

Keywords: radical nationalism; women; ETA; Basque nationalism; oral history; women's activism
