Italy from Within

Excerpt

Some of this the writer witnessed or experienced in the ten years that he was a correspondent in the Foreign Service of The Associated Press. Part of it he heard from the trusted friends that every newspaperman must have. Some of it is the fruit of research in the writings of others.

The bibliography of Fascism is too extensive for publication here. Helpful are The Fascist Government of Italy, by Herbert W. Schneider; Fascist Rule in Italy, by Vera Michele Dean ; Mussolini's Italy, by Herman Finer; What Next O Duce? by Beatrice Baskerville, to mention only a few of the many excellent books.

This does not pretend to be a definitive review of the history of Fascist Italy, or even of the shifting policies of Mussolini. It is intended to help the reader understand what has happened to Italy under Mussolini's dictatorship and what may happen within the country before the last bomb is dropped in World War II.

For that reason, a conscious effort was made to keep it factual and objective. In this connection, special appreciation goes to Charles A. Livingood, former United States commercial attaché at Rome, for invaluable background information on Italian economy.

In the mention of Italians, it has unfortunately been necessary to omit many names in order to spare the individuals from persecution by the police. Some Italian acquaintances of the writer already have been interned. None of them is mentioned in this book. Some diplomatic sources of information remain anonymous because of no wish to embarrass them in their careers . . .
