Paul Preston in conversation with Giles Tremlett

Whither Spain? Lessons from History

Venue: Campus de Santa Cruz la Real, IE University, Aula Magna

The historian Paul Preston and the writer and journalist Giles Tremlett discuss the historical roots of many contemporary Spanish issues, including Catalonia, the law on historic remembrance, a forced change in government and corruption, through the lens of Paul Preston´s forthcoming book – A People Betrayed – A history of Spain from 1874 to the present day, in which the historian provides a compelling argument identifying the all-too-frequent failure of the political class to lead the Spanish state to its true potential.
