Summary
For more than three generations, the members of the Godó family controlled Barcelona’s top-selling newspaper La Vanguardia, navigating it through the country's turbulent 20th century. Whether under the corrupt politics of the Bourbon Restoration, the takeover of Primo de Rivera’s dictatorship or the radical transformations of the Second Republic, La Vanguardia remained Barcelona’s indisputable journalistic benchmark. Central to this success was the Godó family’s capacity to turn their newspaper into an active mouthpiece for Catalan interests in the rest of Spain. In a period characterized by political turmoil and heated controversies over identity, La Vanguardia remained one of the most active bridges between Barcelona and Madrid. At the same time, ownership of the newspaper allowed family members to expand their interests into other fields, such as politics, business and colonial rule in Cuba and Morocco. Drawing on a wide range of archival material, this book is the first account of one of the most influential (yet at the same time, least known) newspapers in modern Spain. In so doing, it sheds new light on how the media shaped and conditioned the birth of mass politics in Europe. While contemporaries often observed that newspapers had a powerful influence over public affairs, historians have not systematically examined the role of press owners as ‘political actors’. In contrast, Pol Dalmau focuses on the case of a renowned family in Barcelona to uncover the media's critical role in Europe's uneven road to modernity.--
