Dirty War, Clean Hands

ETA, the GAL and Spanish Democracy
by P Woodworth
EUR24.99 ($27.99)
Spainís transition from the Franco dictatorship to a democratic state has been widely regarded as exemplary. However, this powerfully written book reveals that as Spainís first post-transition government attempted to destroy the Basque separatist group ETA, it adopted the very policies of indiscriminate terror that had characterized Francoís authoritarian regime and ETAís own strategy. Furthermore, the anti-terrorist liberation group GAL was organized and secretly funded by the government. For this paperback edition the text has been revised and thoroughly updated.
