About this title


This volume is the first study in the English language to focus specifically on Italian crime fiction. The chapters, by leading British and North American scholars, trace the history and development of Italian detective and noir fiction from the 1930s to the present, and examine such topics as the representation of space, gender, and the tradition of impegno—the social and political engagement that characterized the Italian cultural and literary scene in the postwar period.
