"By recasting the time and geography of Italy's most famous films beyond their familiar sphere of influence, Global Neorealism brilliantly reveals neorealism's breathless range of responses, appropriations, and exchanges. This is transnational scholarship at its best."
--Giorgio Bertellini, author of Italy in Early American Cinema: Race, Landscape, and the Picturesque
"Avoiding the dewy-eyed nostalgia that runs through so much writing on the subject, Sklar and Giovacchini have assembled a superb collection of essays that truly places 'neorealism'--as a political ideology as well as a cinematic style--in an admirably global context."
--Richard Peña, professor of film at Columbia University and director of the New York Film Festival
