"In a thoroughly documented and skillfully crafted portrait, Killinger not only examines the major themes of Salvemini's life in their historical context, but reveals a wealth of information derived from archives in both Italy and the United States. In doing so, he traces the forces responsible for shaping this complex personality--intrepid and charismatic, but perplexing--and the successes and failures of the political campaigns in which he engaged. What emerges is a very human story, a life filled with tragedy, conflict, and disappointment, but with success that the author believes to have exerted important influences on post-Fascist Italy."-Philip V.
