About this title:

Synopsis: The Bombs of Orsini
ix, 313 pp. "To most of us Felice Orsini is a name, a shadowy cloak-and-dagger figure from 100 years ago, remembered only as the would-be assassin of Emperor Napoleon III outside the Paris Opera. Felice Orsini was born with conspiracy in his bones--his father was an early member of the secret society known as the Carbonari. His boyhood was spent in an Italy riddled with corruption, groaning under tyrannies--Austrian in the North, clerical in the Papal States, Bourbon in the Kingdom of Naples. Mr. Packe tells of his first arrest for conspiracy, in Bologna in 1843, of his efforts, gallant but doomed, during the brief life of the Roman Republic; of his escape to Nice and then to London, where he became the chief henchman of Mazzini. There followed, in the early 1850s, a fantastic series of revolutionary escapades in Italy and Switzerland, leading to his arrest in Vienna and imprisonment pending execution in the dread fortress of Mantua, whence no one had ever escaped."Keywords: MICHAEL ST JOHN PACKE BOMBS FELICE ORSINI HISTORY EUROPE EUROPEAN BIOGRAPHY
