Born in 1909, Norberto Bobbio's early life was marked by theexperience of growing up in Mussolini's Italy - an experience thathelped to shape his passionate commitment to the anti-fascistcause. As a result of these early experiences, Bobbio hastirelessly emphasized the fundamental, unassailable importance ofdemocratic rights in the modern state. He has been a voice ofreason and moderation in a political context where democraticvalues have often been threatened by extremes.
This masterly autobiography traces the development of Bobbio'spolitical thought, providing a penetrating analysis of the changingpolitical landscape of Italy. At the same time, it represents anintimate account of Bobbio's personal experiences, giving a rareinsight into the life and work of this distinguished thinker.APolitical Life will be of great interest to students and scholarsof social and political theory and of Italian politics, as well asto a general readership interested in political biography andcontemporary politics.
