Most Helpful Customer Reviews

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Alaric on February 23, 2009
Hawthorn avoids the common historian's vice of factual myopia and narrative megalomania; there is an appreciation for 'moral' issues, but, as with good critical works of history this "Study of Power" remains so in essence. --Its intent is not to showcase villany and depravity in a hysterical womanish fashion. This book new would be close to 30$; this printing was 10$ list, so if you can get a copy for that or less, I would say you've spent your money quite well.

*The anecdotes and selections from Mussolini's utterances and writings, along with other personal observations from contemporaries were very well selected and placed within the text; well enough done to deserve mention, as it saves the reader a great deal of sifting through source materials.
