MEDIA REVIEWS

"Quiroga has achieved a portrait of post-Franco Spain that is, undoubtedly, both a tour de force and a must for eventual investigations. Excellent for those interested in Spain." - El Mundo

"Alejandro Quiroga provides an objective and entirely scientific analysis of football's social impact. Football and National Identities in Spain has also the strength of dealing dispassionately with the struggles for sports hegemonies in a country rich in national identities." - El Pais

"An important book due to its deep reflexion, thorough analysis and meticulous use of sources. Rigorous and praiseworthy." - ABC

"Alejandro Quiroga has written the almost definitive book on its subject. This is a brilliant volume with compelling arguments." - Leer
