About the Book

Raphael Minder landed in Madrid in 2010 to cover Spain for The New York Times just as the dark clouds of the financial crisis were about to burst into a full-fledged euro debt storm. "A Decade as a Foreign Correspondent" follows the turbulent and momentous events that have reshaped the country's political landscape: a secessionist movement in Catalonia, the end of Spain's two-party system, and a desperate attempt to contain the coronavirus pandemic. With a correspondent's keen eye, this book takes the reader on an extraordinary journey of discovery - from the most remote corners of Spain, where an arid soil produces delicious truffles; to Moroccan hashish trafficked alongside migrants; to the historical repercussions of American nuclear bombs; and not least to the central square of Madrid, where Spain's radical left-wing movement was born. The book shines a light on Spain through colorful anecdotes that help explain the fraught present, as well as the charged past, of a nation that only returned to democracy in the 1970s. It offers an unbiased perspective on an emotionally-charged decade that has polarized Spain.
About the Author: Raphael Minder has covered Spain for The New York Times since 2010. He previously reported for the Financial Times, including as its Asia regional correspondent. He is the author of The Struggle for Catalonia: Rebel Politics in Spain
