Italian history is complex & extensive & potentially overwhelming for the student or researcher. However, the Historical Dictionary of Modern Italy provides an ideal reference & springboard for research on Italian history, culture, or politics. The Dictionary presents the chief characteristics of Italy's political, social, & cultural changes since the Napoleonic era. Over 350 dictionary-style entries illustrate the rich complexity of Italy's evolution, especially in the twentieth century. Special attention is paid to the political figures, intellectual movements, & formative events. Students & professors of contemporary history, comparative politics, & international relations should find the dictionary-type entries especially useful for scrutinizing Italy's exceptional capacity for political innovation. Useful for first-time students of Italy looking for a familiarity with contemporary Italy, but also as a quick & accurate ready reference for the more experienced scholar. Also included are an introduction, tables, maps, chronologies & thorough subject bibliographies.
