9780312239602: Disastro! Disasters in Italy Since 1860: Culture, Politics, Society

There is no European society whose modern history has been more deeply marked by disasters, both natural and social, than has Italy's. Disasters test the social fabric and the political system to their limits. Survival and rebuilding draw on the deepest cultural reserves. This volume brings new research on all aspects of the Italian experience of disaster from unification to the present day. The book is a significant contribution both to the understanding of Italian history, and to the study of the impact of disasters on society.

About the Author:

JOHN DICKIE is Senior Lecturer in Italian at University College London and is the author of Darkest Italy: The Nation and Stereotypes of the Mezzogiorno, 1860-1900.

JOHN FOOT is British Academy Research Fellow in the Department of Italian, University College London.

Review:

'John Dickie's research offers one of the most acute and original analyses of the way the idea of Southern Italy has been constructed in the contemporary era. An innovative contribution by a perceptive member of a new generation of British historians who, in recent years, have helped change the way Italy has traditionally been represented.' - Piero Bevilacqua, Professore Ordinario of Contemporary History, University of Rome

'...this book is a welcome addition to reading lists on modern Italy.' - Italian Politics & Society

'The variety of the methods untilized to study disaster in this volume will surely be helpful in stimulating the kinds of comparitive analyses that would be especially fruitful among countries that border the Mediterranean.' - Ruth Ben-Ghiat, Mediterranean Historical Review
