“Foot offers a fascinating new perspective on modern Italian history and historiography, amounting to something like an Italian version of the ‘culture wars.’ Italy since unification has lived a split history, punctuated again and again by division, strife, and civil conflict. Foot shows how these civil wars have haunted the nation long after the event through decades-long ‘memory wars,’ evident in public discourse and politics, in parks, streets and squares, monuments and memorial sites throughout the peninsula. Written in the light of the most sophisticated recent work on memory and oral history, and picking up on the furious controversies over the divided memory of the anti-Fascist Resistance, Foot’s book teases out the extraordinary play of contradiction and silence in history and memory. This is an extremely suggestive and rich work.”--Robert S. C. Gordon, Cambridge University
