Fear of Freedom by Carlo Levi Fear of Freedom, Paperback (March 2008)

Carlo Levi (1902-1975) was a painter, writer, and antifascist Italian from a Jewish family whose political activism forced him into exile for most of the Second World War. Written as war clouds were gathering over Europe, this work is also a powerful indictment of our contemporary moral and political failures.

Christ Stopped at Eboli by Carlo Levi Christ Stopped at Eboli, Paperback (May 2000)

Exiled to a remote and barren corner of Italy for his opposition to Mussolini, Carlo Levi entered a world cut off from history and the state, hedged in by custom and sorrow, without comfort or solace, where, eternally patient, the peasants lived in an age-old stillness and in the presence of death - for Christ did stop at Eboli.
