Italy in the Cold War by Christopher Duggan

Book Description

Many of Italy's current problems can be traced back to the years 1948-1958, one of the most interesting but least-studied periods of recent Italian history. This was a decade in which the main cultural and political parameters of contemporary Italy were laid down. It was a time of enormous intellectual and artistic vitality, and a period in which the tensions generated by the Cold War affected the country to a greater degree than in any other western nation. This first general survey of the period provides an overview of the political and economic position of Italy during the Cold War as well as an assessment of the affect of the Cold War on intellectual, cultural and artistic life. Distinguished scholars from a range of disciplines present case-histories on subjects as diverse as:- the state's attitude towards the evolution of the family;- the American presence in the Italian economy; and- the place of the Italian film in world cinema. -Italys attitude towards the EEC and its relationship with NATOStudents and specialists who wish to enhance their understanding of Italian current affairs will find this interdisciplinary approach to the period invaluable.

Books By Author Christopher Duggan

Cult of the Duce by Christopher Duggan Cult of the Duce, Paperback (January 2015)

The cult of the Duce is the first book to explore systematically the personality cult of the Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, looking in detail at its many manifestations in the visual arts, architecture, political spectacle and the media, and analyses its controversial resonances in the postwar period.

Concise History of Italy by Christopher Duggan Concise History of Italy, Paperback (December 2013)

Comprehensively updated new edition of Christopher Duggan's acclaimed introduction to the history of Italy.

Fascist Voices by Christopher Duggan Fascist Voices, Paperback (November 2013)

Looks at a country in thrall to a charismatic dictator. Tracing fascism from its conception to its legacy, this title unpicks why the regime enjoyed so much support among the majority of the Italian people. It examines the extraordinary hold the Duce had on Italy and how he came to embody fascism.

Force of Destiny by Christopher Duggan Force of Destiny, Paperback (May 2008)

The greatness of Italy's culture and way of life have had a powerful attraction for many generations of visitors. This book while sharing everyone's enthusiasm for Italy as a place, distinguishes this from its political role over the past two centuries, which has been both vicious and ruinous for Europe as a whole.
