From Peasant to Entrepreneur by Paul Corner

Book Description

The conspicuous success in Italy of a highly dynamic sector of small, rurally based manufacturing businesses has attracted a considerable amount of attention throughout both Europe and the United States in recent years. This book links this development in Italy to the processes of transformation of certain parts of the Italian countryside over the last hundred years and argues that the involvement of peasant families with both agricultural and industrial employment - a constant of the situation before the First World War - produced an entrepreneurial spirit that was subsequently reflected in the development of rural industries.

Money and Trade Wars in Interwar Europe by Paul Corner Money and Trade Wars in Interwar Europe, Hardback (October 2014)

This books explains, on the basis of archival evidence and a simple economic model, why and how the gold standard collapsed in the interwar period. It also reveals how bilateralism and dirigisme in international financial relations emerged from the collapse of the universal gold standard, and how this poisoned international relations.

Fascist Party and Popular Opinion in Mussolini's Italy by Paul Corner Fascist Party and Popular Opinion in Mussolini's Italy, Hardback (July 2012)

Contradicts the current orthodoxy that there was a generalised popular consensus for the fascist regime and for Mussolini's rule, at least until the disasters of the Second World War. Demonstrates that there was widespread and mounting hostility to the regime among large sections of the population, even in the 1930s.

Popular Opinion in Totalitarian Regimes by Paul Corner Popular Opinion in Totalitarian Regimes, Hardback (October 2009)

A team of internationally acknowledged experts examines the question of popular opinion in totalitarian regimes, looking at the ways in which ordinary people experienced everyday life in the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, and Fascist Italy, with consideration also of Poland and East Germany between 1945 and 1989.
