A critical examination of the history of modern Italy, covering a period from the late eighteenth to the twentieth century, with an emphasis on the international context.
Beginning in the late 18th century, 'Modern Italy' examines the long birthing and continued pangs of the unified nation state (1860). It follows the nation's progress through World War I, the fascist era and the emergence of the postwar republic (1946), to the development of a modern European nation up to about the 1980s.
