Although the unification of Italy in 1870 initially defined the nation's geographic boundaries, Italians faced the new challenge of determining their nation's social, political, and cultural identity as they entered the twentieth century. In Remaking Italy in the Twentieth Century, noted scholar Roy P. Domenico examines the struggle between Liberals, Fascists, Marxists, and Catholics to recast the nation according to their visions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Domenico's concise and succinct yet comprehensive book is perhaps the best general introduction to Italy in the twentieth century that we have in English. It is one of the very few that treats Liberal, Fascist, and post-war Italy, detailing the political, social, economic, and cultural life of each epoch. Domenico paints a lively portrait of Italy and the Italians as they try to define themselves in a most tumultuous century. -- Stanislao Pugliese, Hofstra University
A clear, straightforward introduction to the modern Italian historical experience, appropriate for secondary school as well as lower division undergraduate students. Includes a well-balanced, up-to-date bibliographical essay. -- Steven F. White, Mount Saint Mary's College
Roy Domenico writes in a student-friendly style and packs an enormous amount of information and interpretation into this short volume. -- James E. Miller, Georgetown University
Domenico's concise new book on modern Italy is written in a crisp, clean style. The text provides chronologically balanced coverage of the liberal monarchy, the fascist regime, WW II and the reconstruction period, and, finally, the colorful, often chaotic, history of the post-1948 republic. Recommended. * CHOICE *
Domenico provides an elegant survey of Italian history over the past two hundred years in a book that one hopes is not overlooked by anyone seeking a solid piece of historical scholarship. * Mediterranean Quarterly *
A balanced and concise history of modern Italy from the Liberal Age to the present. Domenico provides a good overview of political, economic, social, and religious Italian developments, supplemented by a useful annotated bibliography. -- Frank J. Coppa, St. John's University
