"It is a most impressive and interesting work.... It is far more than a diplomatic history.... Chabod has produced a kind of total history that is a monument of scholarship, splendidly organized."--

Utilising that Hegelian framework, very much particular to Italian Historiography (think Benedetto Croce), Chabod provides not only an enriched understanding of the mental environs of Italian foreign policy making in the post-risorgimento period, but also a matchless interpretation of moderate political thought amongst the statesmen of Italy. This considers Italy in particular detail, but one cannot help but feel that Chabod opens routes into the other capitals of Europe (T.G. Otte did something reasonably similar with the British Foreign Office). For Chabod, his study provides an exemplar to a different style of diplomatic history, one that considers guiding principles and 'passions' (such is the Italian style) within the mental and linguistic strictures of foreign policy; latticing those deeper structures hard up against the seeming phenomenology of diplomatic events. It is a study with profound insight, well translated. Of equal importance though, it remains not only a delight for a diplomatic scholar, but also a brilliant read for anyone who enjoys a great story (and this one is of nationhood, war, peace, statesmen; a struggle of a nation's march through history).
