La Identidad Vasca en el Mundo: Narrativas sobre Identidad más allá de las Fronteras (Spanish) Paperback – July, 2005
From the Author
La Identidad Vasca en el Mundo: Narrativas sobre Identidad más allá de las Fronteras (The Basque Identity in the World: Identity Narratives Beyond Frontiers; Agustín M. Oiarzabal & Pedro J. Oiarzabal. Bilbao: Erroteta, 2005; prologues by José Ignacio Ruiz Olabuenaga and Gloria Totoricagüena) is a pioneer study that addresses a classical question among scholars and non-scholars: what is the meaning of being Basque today?
La Identidad Vasca en el Mundo: Narrativas sobre Identidad más allá de las Fronteras is the result of research that took place in 2002, in which twenty countries, where Basques have an institutional presence in either the diaspora or the Basque Country, participated. Basques of different ages, generations, diverse socio-economic and historical backgrounds, political traditions, and geographical locations define in their own words the meaning of being Basque in a globalized world. Dr. Gloria Totoricagüena, Professor of Political Science and Diaspora Studies at the Center for Basque Studies, University of Nevada, Reno, states: "The reader will find that rather than answering the original research inquiries with simplified generalizations, the Oiarzabals have excavated a bottomless site and discovered numerous questions for future investigations. We welcome this study and hope that it engages the reader to further delve into the complex questions of Basque identity in the homeland and abroad."

Now, that I am retired I spend most of my time reading about the Basque Country, Spain, France...; history, politics etc...Then, I discover this book "Identidad Vasca en el Mundo". The book compiles a good number of "letters" from Basques from all over the planet (twenty countries, including the Basque homeland) who tell us in their own words 'what Basque means to them'. It is about time that somebody began to collect the stories of those Basques who live outside the Basque Country, while attempting to define the meaning of Basqueness at the beginning of this century from a scholarly point of view.
"Identidad Vasca en el Mundo" provides not only a superb introduction on different academic schools that over the years have studied the phenomenon of identity, but the authors also offer their own definitions of the concept identity and a great bibliographical referece at the end of the book.
The analysis of those "letters" make up the rest of the book, which illustrates today's overlapping and multiple definitions of Basque identity.
I would love to see this book translated into English, so I can show it to my Australian friends and relatives. So, whenever somebody ask me "what is Basque?", I only have to let them read the book. Nevertheless, it is quite easy to read and enjoyable. It has been a pleasure to discover a book that it is most likely to become a reference for generations to come.
