Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The trials and punishments of Italian fascists from 1943 to 1945 were complicated because liberation as still ongoing. Domenico superbly relates the complexities of defining fascism and fascists (i.e., of deciding whom to punish) to the view of political parties and the increasingly violent resistance to fascism."—Choice

"An excellent study of its kind and one that was long overdue."—Journal of Modern History

"Roy Domenico's carefully researched study of the efforts to punish Italy's Fascists in 1943-48 makes a signal contribution to our better understanding of some of the difficult problems faced by Italy during the period of postwar reconstruction."—Charles F. Delzell, Vanderbilt University

Incorporating the most recent research, De Grand (history, North Carolina State U.) reinterprets a significant development in modern history. Domenico describes and evaluates the controversial efforts in Italy to punish Fascists after the overthrow of Mussolini in 1943 and the more violent efforts to do so after the liberation of German-occupied northern Italy in 1945. He focuses on the trials and bureaucratic purges of Fascists and illuminates the political struggles between those who favored the sanctions and those who opposed them. Annotation c.
