Paul Preston in conversation with Giles Tremlett

Whither Spain? Lessons from History

Segovia 2018 , 

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.
