Reviews

Shrewd, lucid, exhaustively documented and totally unsentimental. (David Schoenbaum, The New York Times)

With this insightful, comprehensive study, Bosworth secures his place as one of the two leading historians in the English-speaking world . . . of twentieth-century Italy. (Publishers Weekly, starred and boxed review)

A powerful work of scholarship, beautifully written, which should be read by anyone interested in twentieth-century Europe. (The Economist)
