"Nobody has ever represented [Barcelona's] character more powerfully, or illustrated its claims to self-destiny more persuasively, than has Robert Hughes in this monumental work" (Jan Morris Los Angeles Times)
"Whether untangling the unlikely legends of Wilfred the Hairy or tangling with the likes of Antoni Gaudi, Hughes has shaped Catalan art, architecture and politics into the ultimate guidebooks" (David Newnham Guardian)
"A wonderful book, by far the best yet to have appeared in the current flood of books on Spain - and one that fills a genuine gap" (Martin Gayford Sunday Telegraph)
"Barcelona is unlikely to be rewarded with a better history than this. Robert Hughes is a master of the big canvas, scooping up the detail of social, economic, political and artistic life and producing images of captivating richness" (Sunday Times)
'This will certainly become the standard book on Barcelona - a superb achievement and a great pleasure to read' Colm ToibinSee all Product description

It is a little dense at first - and the names are hard to remember - but for an overview of Barcelona's significance you can't get better than Robert Hughes' direct and straight-forward prose style. You can hear the Aussie accent as you read - and it's all the better for that.
Worth every penny.
