If you're taking modern history or are just interested in Italy's past, you can't go wrong with this book. Whilst the history spanning from Roman times to the unification is less in depth as there are, afterall, numerous books already on renaissance Italy, it is concisely laid out and not lacking in essential detail. The period from the unification up to the early 90s is very in depth, including the fascist years and the war years and explains a great deal both about the political and the social state of the country then and now.
I bought this becasue I knew little of the history of Italy and given that I am half Italian thought I should fill in the gaps in my knowledge, but I think this book would be perfect for anyone who is interested in Italy, or who is doing modern history and wants to understand where the italians fit into it in more depth.

As an introduction to Italian History particularly since 1860, this is an exceptional book. I found the chapters covering fascism particularly enlightening. I strongly recommend this as a starting point for anyone interested in improving their general knowledge on Italy.
