4.0 out of 5 stars Ginsborg explains Italy excellently, 15 Mar 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Italy and Its Discontents: Family, Civil Society, State 1980-2001 (Hardcover)
This book is yet another in depth look at Italy, by an author well-known among italophiles for his first book on the topic. Ginsborg explains Italian society and politics, using the family as his looking glass. It is this approach that makes Ginsborg's explanantions of what makes Italian society tick unique.
Even though quite academic in places (for instance the initial chapter on economics), this book is never so academic as to be incomprehensible. This book makes you want to continue reading to find out what comes next - a rare ocurrence with non-fiction!
If your interest in Italy goes further than reading accounts of those who set up house in Tuscany, then this book is definitely for you!
