JCB was the greatest Spanish social historian alive during Franco's régime. His approach to history requires a wealth of scholarship and training, a combination that makes his brand of social history rooted in anthropology extremely difficult to emulate. Portraits of friends, of great figures, of maestros, and biography in general, were themes close to JCB's heart. Proof of this are books or his anthropological reflections on the practice of biography. He also published a short autobiography, Una vida en tres actos, but Los Baroja. Memorias familiares, a biography of his family from the 19th century on, is perhaps his best written book. This brief account of his life and work is an attempt to emulate his superb portraits and provide an accurate sketch of the man who became my maestro: A Personal memoir, his life, the originality of his research and theoretical activity, notes on his method, contribution to Basque historiography.
