The history of Italy is central to the European experience. Through the supremacy of Rome, Italy enjoyed its greatest influence, as Roman power stretched from the Atlantic to the borders of Mesopotamia, and from the Scottish Lowlands to the Sahara Desert. A Traveller's History of Italy moves from Italy's pre-historic, and Etruscan civilizations, through the Roman Empire and the Renaissance, the creation of modern Italy, fascism and World War II, and the role of Italy in today's Europe, right up to the present.

Valerio Lintner is principal Lecturer at London Guildhall University.Review:
A Traveller's History of Italy makes ideal 'before-you-go' reading, putting names and places in the country into proper perspective. The Daily Telegraph (London) [A] unique... delightful book... provides a lively text in this small volume that goes a long way in explaining to the traveler just who has walked the stones of Rome before him.
