A fascinating book on a fascinating subject - one which, admittedly, is close to my heart. Having a love of Spain, its culture and tradition, however, is by no means a pre-requisite to being hooked by 'The Bull and the Ban'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of character, colour and characters., 5 Oct. 2012
A fascinating book on a fascinating subject - one which, admittedly, is close to my heart. Having a love of Spain, its culture and tradition, however, is by no means a pre-requisite to being hooked by 'The Bull and the Ban'.

Written in a highly readable style and with a refreshingly unprejudiced and inquisitive tone, this book slowly and sucessfully builds up a well-rounded - if not entirely comprehensive - picture of the issues, opinions and interests related to this dramatic twist in Catalan law. Marvellously rich in history, character and anecdote, it nonetheless sticks closely to the relevant topics. I also find that the diverse nature of the assembled interviewees - from a bullfighting impressario to a radical transvestite performance artist! - ensures that an unusually satisfying scope and balance is achieved.

Indeed, my one serious criticism is that it isn't twice the length! Well-recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bull and The Ban, 18 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great book to give you an insight of the world of the taurine.

You get to find out more about the political and historical views as well as hearing from a universal range of interviews.

A simple read on a subject that can very easly get over Complicated when written about.

I look forward to reading future publications from the Author.
