about

Award-winning author Alexander Stille has been called ?one of the best English-language writers on Italy? by the New York Times Book Review, and in The Sack of Rome he sets out to answer the question: What happens when vast wealth, a virtual media monopoly, and acute shamelessness combine in one man? Many are the crimes of Silvio Berlusconi, Stille argues, and, with deft analysis, he weaves them into a single mesmerizing chronicle?an epic saga of rank criminality, cronyism, and self-dealing at the highest levels of power.

Editorial Reviews

A frightening case study . . . that has plenty of bearing on our own media-driven politics. (BusinessWeek)With a sharp knife and a clear eye, Stille . . . has dissected the remarkable, revolting story of the rise of the former (and future?) prime minister of Italy, and the political-cultural revolution that he has fathered, for good and mostly for bad. . . . Fascinating. (Los Angeles Times)This riveting, unsparing biography is not merely an exposT of Berlusconi but a vivid lesson in how, under the right conditions, any man of wealth and few scruples can manipulate an entire nation. (Chicago Tribune)
