This volume covers a range of subjects to study Italian national identity. Essays reveal how cultural identity is constructed and manipulated--an issue made urgent by the influx of African, Indochinese, and Eastern European immigrants into Italy today. Topics include exile, nationalism, imagined communities, Italy's colonial "unconscious", and Mussolini's adventures in North Africa. Illustrated. 423 pp.
