  Basque itself was spoken in Biscay, a large area of Northern Spain completely separating Castillian from Catalan. Catalan's neighbours were Basques and speakers of Provençal. All this happened in a narrow band along the Atlantic coast: to the south the rest of the peninsula was occupied by Arabs, many of whose subjects spoke a very Arab. In this book, Daniele Conversi compares and contrasts two widely known nationalist movements in Spain: the Basques in the northeast and the Catalans in the east.

The Basques and Catalans, who trace their nationalist histories back centuries, are the two foremost and empowered ethnic groups attempting to wrest power away from the central government in Madrid.

Basques and Catalans ARE Spaniards. The differences are mostly imaginary and made up by nationalist groups. Ethnically, there's absolutely no difference. Their DNA shows that they all belong mostly to the R1B haplogroup, with preponderance of a variant known as West Atlantic Modal Haplotype.
