Society and Politics in the Age of the Risorgimento by Paul Ginsborg
Book DescriptionSociety and Politics in the Age of the Risorgimento contains ten essays written in honour of Denis Mack Smith by leading British and Italian specialists. The volume is intended both as a tribute to Denis Mack Smith's outstanding contribution to Italian history and as an attempt to open up wider debate on Italian society and politics in the period of the Risorgimento, bringing aspects of nineteenth-century Italian politics and social history into a comparative European context. Topics discussed in the volume include the collapse of the ancien regime in southern Italy; the Italian armies in the Napoleonic period; debates on poverty in Italy and Europe in the early nineteenth century; family and marriage; the origins of the mafia in Sicily; peasant protest in the Po valley; Garibaldi and England in the 1860s; the emergence of an Italian middle class; women workers; and the politics of the critic Francesco De Sanctis.

Politics of Everyday Life, Paperback (July 2005)
Concern over the state of the world - its tensions and disparities - fosters in many people the uneasy combination of two sensations: those of urgency and powerlessness. This book explores what we can do. It considers the options for civil society, and for the individual within the political culture.
Society and Politics in the Age of the Risorgimento, Paperback (July 2002)
A comparative European perspective on aspects of nineteenth-century Italian politics and social history.
History of Contemporary Italy, Paperback (September 1990)» View all books by Paul Ginsborg
Contemporary Italy strongly mirrors Britain - the countries have roughly the same extent, population size and GNP - and yet they are fantastically different. This book presents an account of how Italy has coped, or failed to cope, with the past decades. It is suitable for those who wish to understand contemporary Italy.
