Wendy Ugolini

Published by Manchester University Press

Cultural History of Modern War MUP

  • Counters the romanticised view of the Italian presence in Scotland by highlighting their racial mistreatment during World War Two
  • Contests some of the key myths about Italian internment and complicates the view of Italian victimhood during World War Two
  • Highlights the traumatic nature of wartime events and their long-term psychological impact on the Italian diaspora in Scotland
  • Moves away from the traditional focus on internees by also considering the wartime experiences of non-internees
