Italy: From Revolution to Republic, 1700 to the Present

By Spencer M. Di Scala | Go to book overview

Bibliographical Essay

Since convenient bibliographies on Italy from the eighteenth century to the present are not readily available, this bibliographical essay has been designed with several purposes in mind. For undergraduates writing papers and having little or no familiarity with Italian, the works cited in English will allow the students to find documentation on the major themes discussed in the various chapters. Both general and specific works have been included so a person interested in Italian history may first become familiar with the general history of a period or topic before proceeding to a more-detailed analysis of particular questions. This technique may also prove useful for general readers. For graduate students or scholars interested in different periods, the most useful works in Italian have been included.

Before considering works connected to specific chapters, several useful reference publications may be mentioned. There are two good historical dictionaries that provide brief biographies of major characters and discussions of minor personages, institutions, publications, and movements, and discussions of minor personages that would otherwise be difficult to find, along with some indications for further reading. They are Frank J. Coppa, Editor-in-Chief, Dictionary of Modern Italian History ( Westport, 1985), and Philip V. Cannistraro, Editor-in-Chief, Historical Dictionary of Fascist Italy ( Westport, 1982).

Convenient short bibliographies worth noting are Frank J. Coppa and William Roberts, Modern Italian History:An Annotated Bibliography ( New York, 1990), which begins in the eighteenth century; Charles E Delzell, Italy in the Twentieth Century ( Washington, D.C., 1980) ( American Historical Association Pamphlet, No. 428); and Clara Lovett, Contemporary Italy:A Selective Bibliography ( Washington, D.C., 1985). Essays on recent American books on Italy and valuable memoirs of Americans involved in Italy are in Borden W. Painter, Jr. , ed. Perspectives on Italy ( Hartford, 1992), a special issue of The Cesare Barbieri Courier, based at Trinity College. Lists of works, including recent books, articles, papers, dissertations, and works in progress may be found in the annual Newsletter of the Society for Italian Historical Studies (edited by Alan Reinerman, Boston College). An equivalent publication discusses recent works primarily in political science: the Newsletter of the Conference Groupon Italian Politics and Society
