Editorial Reviews

"While Riall's appraisal of over a century of liberal, conservative, and Marxist historiography is most informative, her evaluation of the most recent analyses that have challenged and revitalized the study of the Risorgimento provides valuable insights into contemporary scholarship's concern with the bonds that connect the evolution of the modern nation-state to ideas, symbols, and culture. Summing Up: Highly recommended." --CHOICE
