The Wreck of Catalonia

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on conflicts in the lesser towns and cities that lent crucial weight to the forces that were tearing Catalonia apart. The example of Girona illustrates the condition of these smaller urban centres. Girona was in a state of violent social unrest orchestrated by factions (bandols) for whom control of the municipality represented both an object and an instrument of their rivalry.

Keywords:   Catalonia, Girona, social unrest, towns, cities, electoral system, municipality
