Usually arrives at our store within 4-7 days
A unique work that collections, for the first time, a wide variety of materials on both Italian fascism and antifascism. When the historical significance of fascism and antifascism is still being debated in Italy and across Europe, this anthology offers an uncommon and unusually wide-ranging collection of documents. Specialists will appreciate the comprehensive range and concern with historiographical debates; students will benefit from a long introductory essay as well as notes to each selection, a glossary and an extensive 'guide to further reading'. Instructors will appreciate its effectiveness in describing and depicting a wide range of voices - political, literary, popular - that will illuminate the twenty year period of fascism and antifascism in Italy. The general reader will marvel at previously unavailable documents, including letters from women to Mussolini and antifascist graffiti from a Nazi prison in Rome.
