Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An introductory text to the history of contemporary Italy from post World War II to the present. Mignone (Italian, State U. of New York, Stony Brook) developed his ideas through a course he teaches at Stony Brook, and is intent on examining Italy from an Italian and not an American perspective. The topics covered range across the cultural, political, and economic spectrum, including: communism, socialism, foreign relations, terrorism, industrial and social transformations, education, family tradition, feminism, and Catholicism.
