The Oxford Illustrated History of Italy

Edited by George Holmes

Oxford Illustrated Histories

In The Oxford History of Italy, two millennia of political turmoil and artistic glory are brought to life. Written by twelve leading scholars, this attractively designed volume paints a vivid portrait that ranges from the first hints of a nascent Italian consciousness (which often clashed with Rome's authority in the first century), to the Fascist struggles of the twentieth. Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of pictures--including 24 page of color plates--this attractive volume is an essential history for anyone interested in Italy--an authoritative and unforgettable journey through this remarkable land.
