In January of 2000, Pere Mayor was elected as a president of the Valencian Nationalist Bloc (Bloc Nacionalista Valencià). He had been the general secretary of the Valencian People's Union (Unitat del Poble Valencià), one of the parties from which the new BNV was born. Since its the founding in 1982, the UPV has represented the values of the Valencian national left-wing. However, it did not obtained the representation in the Valencian Parliament —although it actually did in the city councils—, since it has never surpassed the electoral barrier of the 5%, a law that many call unfair because it violates the political plurality of the Valencian Country. It was only during the period of 1987-1991 —and in coalition with the United Left (Esquerra Unida)— the UPV managed to enter the Corts Valencianes. One of his two deputies and spokesman was Pere Mayor —who after his parliamentary experience, held the post of deputy mayor in Ontinyent (1991-1995). Therefore, the long and difficult march of the UPV —now called BNV— is inevitably linked to the life trajectory of Pere Mayor. He was a graduate in history, and when he was young he already knew that the freedom of the Valencian Country could only be achieved through the political procedures. A country with a future reviews —in the form of an interview— this vital political journey without forgetting any of the determining moments for the UPV —the agreement with the EU and Convergència, the relations with the Socialist Party of the Valencian Country (PSPV), Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) , etc—. Moreover, the book is very pleasing, as it reveals anecdotes and facts from the Valencian policy which were completely unpublished: the tricks and scams that the media cannot or does not want to publish. It is with good reason that A country with a future has awaken a huge interest, and the second edition has recently been published.
