The Wreck of Catalonia

This chapter discusses tension in Barcelona that spilled into unrest in Catalonia. The tension began from a conflict of interest between groups of citizens — the Biga and Busca factions — that grew into a contest for control of the city. The Biga faction had the city of Barcelona in its grip by manipulating the membership of the two bodies which ran the city: the five-man executive council (the Consell), and the deliberative Council of a Hundred (Consell de Cent Jurats). The opposing Busca faction was seeking a voice in city government commensurate with its social and economic importance.
