Barcelona: Jews, Transvestites and an Olympic season

(Ten Speed Press; 1994)

This book chronicles the Olympic year of 1992 in Barcelona, paying close attention to how the city had changed since Franco died, both in its sexual attitudes and its treatment of the Jews, five hundred years after Columbus sailed for the New World and all the Jews who would not convert were killed or expelled from Spain.

 

“This book gives readers a city they can see, hear, taste, and smell…a top-notch mixture of history, travel, and sociology…”
