Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A major bestseller in Italy, Paul Ginsborg's account of this most recent and dynamic period in Italy's history is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand contemoprary Italy. Ginsborg chronicles a period that witnessed a radical transformation in the country's social, economic and political landscape, creating a fascinating and definitve account of how Italy has coped or failed to cope as it moves from one century to the next. With particular emphasis on its role in italian life, work and culture Ginsborg shows how smaller families, longer lives and greater generation crossover have had significant effects on Italian society. Ginsborg looks at the 2000 elections, the influence of the Mafia, the decline of both Communism and Catholicism, and the change in national identity. This is modern history at its best.

Synopsis:

The sequel to Paul Ginsborg's work "A History of Contemporary Italy" takes the story through the 1980s and 1990s. Contemporary Italy strongly mirrors Britain and yet they are very different, with the author indentifying the difference most clearly in the role of the family.

Synopsis:

Ginsborg discusses the role of family in Italian society and argues that it plays a vital role in the country's politics and business. Written by a Professor of Contemporary European History at the University of Florence this title should prove interesting reading to anyone wanting to understand more about contemporary Italy.
