Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'This original and engaging text provides students with both stimulating ideas and original sources. It also covers an impressive number of critical works in Italian that would otherwise remain unknown to English-speaking readers. The new edition includes essential updates and puts the Berlusconi era in its full historical context.' - Claudia Baldoli, Newcastle University, UK

'The new edition of Modern Italy remains an excellent survey of key issues and the relevant literature.' - Geoff Haywood, Arcadia University, USA

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION:

'The thematic, rather than chronological, approach, and the problematic, rather than narrative, approach are both brave and effective.' - Dr. Philip Morgan, University of Hull, UK

'This is an important contribution to the material available in English: beautifully written - accessible to the average student.' - Dr Mary Maidoff, SACI, Florence, Italy

'Foot's analysis is an extremely valuable contribution to our understanding of modern Italy. It is fully up-to-date with the latest research findings and interpretive approaches, foregrounding the key historiographical debates and, more generally, the study of history itself as debate and argument.' - Geoff Haywood, Modern Italy

'The best short introduction to Italian politics and society is John Foot's Modern Italy.' - Geoff Andrews, Not a Normal Country: Italy After Berlusconi (Pluto, 2005)
