PostAt the Madrid Book Fair (Angel Vinas, Belgium, 06/09/19 10:13 pm)
I'm in Spain signing copies of my book at the Madrid Book Fair. I'm a bit embarrassed to say that this book, Who Wanted the Civil War, is likely to be my most successful one ever.
I've promised the readers of my blog to upload a small article in which I will try to demonstrate how the recent sentence of the Spanish Supreme Court is in line, and must be interpreted with, a precedent which gives information about the frame of mind of some legal eagles of the Francoist juridical system. My thesis will be that the same frame of mind permeates the said sentence eighty years later.
I will upload it to WAIS albeit in Spanish. I won't have the time to translate it into English, because as soon as I get back to Brussels I must prepare for my short summer holidays in sunny Tuscany.
JE comments: Ángel, congratulations on the success of ¿Quién quiso la Guerra Civil? It's on my summer reading list. Thoughts on this year's Book Fair? Any new "it" authors this Hispanist should know about?
