Garibaldi's Defense of the Roman Republic 1848 to 1849
1907. With seven maps and numerous illustrations. Trevelyan was a master of the so-called literary school of historical writing, and his reaction against scientific history has had tremendous influence. He did not, however, ignore the scientific aspects of historical scholarship; rather he asserted that the historian must elucidate his subject through imaginative speculation, based on all possible evidence, and present it by means of highly developed literary craftsmanship. His study of Garibaldi, Italian liberator and hero-figure of nineteenth-century liberal nationalism, is one of his most ambitious works.
