Overview

Italy Today is a concise and fascinating story of the stunning transformation of a nation. Detailing the period from the Second World War to the present, this book provides unique insights into the dynamics of a country which emerged from a ravaged, post-war agrarian society to become a technological leader competing with France to become the fourth largest industrialized country in the Western World. This volume examines the influence of a broad range of subjects such as political institutions, parliament, women, youth, the media, the Church, and trade unions on Italian history and culture. Divided into three major sections devoted to an analysis of politics, society, and the economy, the organization allows for a lively discussion of contemporary Italy. The style of the writing will appeal to a broad range of scholars, students, and general readers.
