Richard Bosworth's overview of Italy's role in European and world politics from 1860 to 1960 is lively and iconclastic. Based on a combination of primary research and secondary material he examines Italian diplomacy, military power, commerce, culture, tourism and ideology. His account challenges many aspects of current Italian historiography and offers an original vision of the place of Italy in modern history.

This book provides a narrative history of Italian colonialism from Italian unification in the 1860s to the first decade of the twentieth century; that is, it details Italy’s imperialism in the years of the Scramble for Africa. It deals with the factors that drove Italy to search for territory in Africa in the 1870s and 1880s and describes the reasoning behind the trajectories adopted and objectives pursued. The events that brought Italy to open conflict with the Ethiopian Empire culminating in the Italian defeat at Adowa in March 1896 are central to the book. However its scope is much broader, as it considers the establishment of Italian power in Eritrea as well as Somalia before and after the defeat. By telling its history, it explains why Italy emerged irresolute and humiliated in this, its first thrust into Africa, yet nonetheless determined to pursue expansion in the future. The seeds for the conquest of Libya in 1911 and Ethiopia in 1935 had been sown.

Erst 1861 wird Italien zum Einheitsstaat. Vorausgegangen waren mehr als 13 Jahrhunderte kleinräumiger Hegemonien - und Epochen großer kultureller Blüte. Dieses Buch erzählt und erklärt die Geschichte und die Entwicklung der verschiedenen Staaten und Herrschaftsformen zwischen Alpen und Ätna, beschreibt die Lebenswelten der Eliten und der kleinen Leute und arbeitet dabei verständlich und fesselnd die historischen Leitlinien der in Italien bis heute besonders lebendigen Vergangenheit heraus. Dieses Buch erzählt fundiert und fesselnd die Geschichte Italiens über anderthalb Jahrtausende. Es erklärt die vielfältige Staatenwelt und deren Schicksale im Verlauf der Jahrhunderte, zeichnet die Kleinräumigkeit der Loyalitäten und die besondere Form des Patriotismus nach, würdigt Herrscher und bedeutende Persönlichkeiten und läßt in besonderer Weise die einzigartige und innovative Kultur des Landes lebendig werden, die Italien ein halbes Jahrtausend lang zu einem Begriff in Europa machte. Die hier vorgelegte Gesamtdarstellung, die auf dem neuesten Forschungsstand einen geschlossenen Überblick über die historische Entwicklung des Landes vom Ausgang der Spätantike bis zur Gegenwart bietet, zieht zudem Verbindungslinien zwischen Vergangenheit und Gegenwart und macht so das besondere Nationalbewußtsein und die gegenwärtige Befindlichkeit Italiens verständlich.

It is now 80 years since Mussolini's Fascism came to power in Italy, but the political heirs of the original Fascism are part of government in today's Italy. The resurgence of neo-fascist and neo-Nazi extremism all over Europe are a reminder of the continuing place of fascism in contemporary European society, despite its political and military defeat in 1945. This thoroughly revised, updated and expanded edition provides a critical and comprehensive overview of the origins of Fascism and the movement's taking and consolidation of power. Philip Morgan: · explains how the experience of the First World War created Fascism · describes how the unsettled post-war conditions in Italy enabled an initially small group of political adventurers around Mussolini to build a large movement and take power in 1922 · focuses on the workings of the first ever 'totalitarian' system and its impacts on the lives and outlooks of ordinary Italians · considers the meshing of internal 'fascistisation' and expansionism, which emerged most clearly after 1936 as Italy became more closely aligned with Nazi Germany · examines the demise of Italian Fascism between 1943 and 1945 as Mussolini and his party became the puppets of Nazism · provides an explanation and interpretation of Fascism, locating it in contemporary history and taking account of recent debates on the nature of the phenomenon. Clear and approachable, this essential text is ideal for anyone interested in Italy's turbulent political history in the first half of the twentieth century.

This book analyses the relationship between Fascist Italy and the League of Nations in the interwar years. By uncovering the traces of those Italians working in the organization, this volume investigates Fascist Italy’s membership of the League, and explores the dynamics between nationalism and internationalism in Geneva. The relationship between Fascist Italy and the League of Nations was contradictory, shifting from active collaboration to open disagreement. Previous literature has not reflected this oscillation in policy, focusing disproportionally on the problems Italy caused for the League, such as the Ethiopian crisis. Yet Fascist Italy remained in the League for more than fifteen years, and was the third largest power within the institution. How did a Fascist dictatorship fit into an organization espousing principles of liberal internationalism? By using archival sources from four countries, Elisabetta Tollardo shows that Fascist Italy was much more concerned with, and involved in, the League than currently believed.
