Italy in the Nineteenth Century


Edited by John A. Davis

Short Oxford History of Italy

  • The first volume (along with Italy Since 1945 by Patrick McCarthy) of the major new Short Oxford History of Italy series
  • This is the most extensively studied period of post-classical Italian history in universities here and abroad: one of the key examples of 19th Century nation-making
  • Chapters linked together by a substantial introduction and conclusion, by internal cross-references
  • Includes detailed chronology, a glossary of terms, names of major authors, further reading as well as a comprehensive index
  • Not a narrative history (though a broad framework of events emerges), but an explicit thematical approach in a series of analytical surveys of society, politics, economics, culture, etc., each by a leading scholar at the cutting edge of historiography
  • The contributors are all top names in the field and together make up an enterprising and formidable volume (series editor is Professor John Davis, Emiliana Pasca Noether Chair in Modern Italian History in the University of Connecticut)
