The war that won't die

Manchester University Press

This chapter examines the Basque-set historical drama Vacas/Cows, which places the civil war within the context of the Basque country's violent past and highlights the importance of understanding the conflict's nationalist dimension. It engages with the cyclical view of history that the film presents, contrasting it with the historiographical perspectives outlined previously, and also explores Julio Medem's own relationship with Basque politics and the importance of Basque history to any understanding of the civil war.

Keywords:   Basque country, Vacas, Cows, Spanish Civil War, cyclical history, Julio Medem
