 1.  Italy in the Nineteenth Century: 1796-1900
Edited by John A. Davis
312 pages, paperback / softcover, Oxford University Press
Covering the period from the French Revolution to the end of the 19th Century, this volume sets the events leading to Italian Unification and the creation of an independent Italian state in the broader context of 19th-century European history. Challenging the view that the political failings of the Risorgimento and Italy's economic and social backwardness paved the way for fascism in the 20th century, it emphasizes how similar Italy's social and political development was to that of other modernizing European states in the same period, while explaining why Italy's experience of modernization in the nineteenth century also proved particularly difficult.
Italy in the Nineteenth Century provides both the general and specialist reader with a critical, concise introduction to the most recent historical debates and perspectives.

"With its clearly-written, well-organized essays on a wide range of topics (and a very helpful glossary of terms and chronological table), this is a very welcome addition to the literature on 19th century Italy."--Theresa McBride, College of Holy Cross
