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.

Editorial Reviews

Giulino Manacorda
"A framework that courageously builds up the dynamics that gave impetus to the profound transformation of the country. Readers will find it admirable for its mastery of the material and the sobriety of its judgments."--Giuliano Manacorda, University of Rome
Sebastiano Martelli
"Mignone's work is a serious and documented panorama of Italy since World War II that is both informative and challenging. It unravels the most complex historical and social problems by approaching them from more than one direction and by using lucid and balanced judgment."--Sebastiano Martelli, University of Salerno
Booknews
While concluding that Italy is an under-recognized world power in search of equilibrium, Mignone (Italian, State U. of New York at Stony Brook) dispels stereotypes<-->through explaining Italy's political, economic, social, and cultural foundations and transformations since World War II, US-Italian relations, and other fundamental aspects of its society. Statistical data are appended. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
