Editorial Reviews

Review

Domenico's concise and succinct yet comprehensive book is perhaps the best general introduction to Italy in the twentieth century that we have in English. It is one of the very few that treats Liberal, Fascist, and post-war Italy, detailing the political, social, economic, and cultural life of each epoch. Domenico paints a lively portrait of Italy and the Italians as they try to define themselves in a most tumultuous century. (Stanislao Pugliese)

A clear, straightforward introduction to the modern Italian historical experience, appropriate for secondary school as well as lower division undergraduate students. Includes a well-balanced, up-to-date bibliographical essay. (Steven F. White)

Roy Domenico writes in a student-friendly style and packs an enormous amount of information and interpretation into this short volume. (James E. Miller)

Domenico's concise new book on modern Italy is written in a crisp, clean style. The text provides chronologically balanced coverage of the liberal monarchy, the fascist regime, WW II and the reconstruction period, and, finally, the colorful, often chaotic, history of the post–1948 republic. Recommended. (Choice)

Domenico provides an elegant survey of Italian history over the past two hundred years in a book that one hopes is not overlooked by anyone seeking a solid piece of historical scholarship. (Mediterranean Quarterly)

A balanced and concise history of modern Italy from the Liberal Age to the present. Domenico provides a good overview of political, economic, social, and religious Italian developments, supplemented by a useful annotated bibliography. (Frank J. Coppa)

Format: Paperback
Roy Domenico's newest book, Remaking Italy in the Twentieth Century, is an excellent introduction into the history of modern Italy. His writing is detailed yet not daunting, clear yet not simple, and throughout the book he paints a picture of Italy worthy of the greatest Renaissance artists. His style is concise and concrete, leaving the reader with a comprehensive study of Italian politics and culture in the 1900s. History students will find a break from the monotony of most modern historians in Domenico's work.

Format: Paperback
It is always difficult to summarize a century of history. Domenico's concise yet comprehensive book on the history of modern Italy does the job.

From unification to the so-called liberal age and down to the fascist era and the post war period, the book gives a succinct and clear view of the political, economical and social changes of Italy during the last 150 years.

The book must be read prior to any other in-depth analysis of this period.

Format: Paperback
Another epic true to his rooted style of meticulous summarization and lively delivery.
Domenico's writing is like your Mom's Turkey on Thanksgiving; it's great to look at, full of juicy contents, with a tender texture that leaves you hungry for more.
Glad I was introduced to this author and subsequently this Literary gem. No one does Italy like Domenico.
