Today, I’m very excited to tell you about a book that is about to come out in Spain on 12 April. It’s called Actúa (Act), it’s edited by Rosa María Artal, and it’s a sequel to the collection of essays entitled Reacciona, (React) which sold very well in Spain. Actúa, like Reacciona, is about the current Spanish economic crisis. It takes a practical approach: what’s wrong with Spain and what could be done about it?
Actúa includes essays by some important Spanish public figures, including Baltasar Garzón, the former judge at the Audiencia Nacional responsible for the international warrant that got Chilean ex-dictator Augusto Pinochet arrested.
Why am I talking about this book here? Well… I’m very proud to announce that Mr Liburuak has co-authored a chapter (my claim to fame by proxy)! It’s on the current dreary situation of Spanish science policy, on why investment into science and innovation are vital, and on how they could help Spain get out of the crisis in the long term.
If you read Spanish, keep your eyes peeled for Actúa, published by Editorial Debate. It should be very exciting.
