Editorial Reviews

?Modern Italian history, as presented in this dictionary, includes chief events, personalities, institutions, systems, and problems from the eighteenth century to the 1980s. Political, economic, cultural, social, and religious history are covered in signed articles that range from 100 to 900 words. The longer entries include bibliographical references... The work also appears in a useful Introduction that surveys events of their respective periods. This Introduction is especially helpful for users who wish to place a topic in its contemporary context--a need that too few works of this type address. The Dictionary contains (in addition to the expected entries on Italy) articles on persons and events influential in Italian affairs, e.g., Clemenceau, Napoleon I, Napolean III. It does not neglect foreign relations and colonial questions, as the entries Trieste, Ethiopia, Paris Peace Conference, and Crimean War attest. Contemporary subjects...are fully treated, and cultural history is represented by articles on writers..., intellectuals..., and movements... Five appendixes, including chronologies of events, ministries, presidents, kings, and popes, follow the dictionary, and there is also an Index of contents with both main entries and other subjects that cannot readily be accessed via the alphabetical listing. With these appurtenances, the Dictionary of Modern Italian History is a useful reference for students and researchers. Its acquisition should be considered by libraries ranging from those in high schools to research institutions.?-Reference Books Bulletin
