'Teresa Whitfield's elegantly written study is the first serious analysis of the highly complex process leading to [ETA's] decision to declare a general, permanent and verifiable ceasefire in January 2011. Whitfield … presents a well-researched, highly convincing and subtly nuanced account of this process, which will be of interest both to those already familiar with ETA's history and readers seeking broader insights into how terrorist organisations come to an end.' --Times Literary Supplement
'Whitfield is a sure-footed guide to the involvement of moderators and peacemakers from other parts of Europe and the US, who eventually prevailed against the hard-liners in the Basque country and in Madrid who were set on the elimination of their opponents. Her book deserves to become a classic for peacemakers.' --The Tablet
'The most detailed study to date of the Centre for Human Dialogue s involvement in the Basque Conflict. ... This is an enjoyable, well-written book by an expert in the theory and practice of conflict resolution.' --Iñigo Gurruchaga, El Correo
'...essential reading.' (Foreign Affairs)
'Highly recommended for researchers interested in the Basque conflict or actively working in the peace process.' (LSE Review of Books)
'...an admirably clear and perceptive analysis of the conflict's tortuous path towards resolution over the past 15 years ... Endgame for Eta asks some difficult but pertinent questions.' (The Irish Times)
'The most detailed study to date of the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue's involvement in the Basque Conflict. ... This is an enjoyable, well-written book by an expert in the theory and practice of conflict resolution.' (Inigo Gurruchaga, El Correo)
'...excellent and exhaustive.' (El Imparcial)
'Whitfield is a sure-footed guide to the involvement of moderators and peacemakers from other parts of Europe and the US, who eventually prevailed against the hard-liners in the Basque country and in Madrid who were set on the elimination of their opponents. Her book deserves to become a classic for peacemakers.' (The Tablet)
'Endgame for ETA is a wonderful book - academically rigorous and well researched, yet engaging and accessible to the general reader. Avoiding simplistic arguments, Whitfield counterbalances the complex factors leading to ETA's demise with a sober critique of Spain's counterterrorism. The thoughtful lessons that she draws from this fascinating case deserve a broad reading and high-level attention.' (Audrey Kurth Cronin, author of How Terrorism Ends: Understanding the Decline and Demise of Terrorist Campaigns)
'Whitfield's work on the Basque-Spain conflict sets a new standard of excellence for case studies of conflict resolution. Her grasp of its historical and cultural nuance is matched by her mastery of the broader field of informal and complex peace processes. In an era when governments and violent extremists struggle to find any common language, Endgame for Eta offers practitioners and scholars alike a rewarding exploration of the intricacies of peacemaking.' (Chester Crocker, James R. Schlesinger Professor of Strategic Studies at Georgetown University, and former Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs in the Reagan administration)
'Every Spanish Prime Minister since Franco has said they will never negotiate with ETA and yet every one of them has done so. Teresa Whitfield's unique and fascinating account of the latest round of negotiations should be compulsory reading for all leaders who say they will never talk to terrorists.' (Jonathan Powell, Tony Blair's former chief of staff and the chief British negotiator on Northern Ireland 1997-2007)
'This is an impressive, succinct and well-balanced analysis of ETA and its complex universe. Teresa Whitfield offers a thorough reconstruction of ETA's fractured history and of political efforts over decades to achieve ceasefire and disarmament. Endgame for ETA should be required reading for all those seeking to understand violent sub-state nationalism and the Basque society in particular.' (Sebastian Balfour, Emeritus Professor of Contemporary Spanish Studies, London School of Economics and Political Science)
