Politics and Ideology in the Italian Workers' Movement: Union Development and the Changing Role of the Catholic and Communist Subcultures in Postwar Italy

By Gino Bedani | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

From among the numerous Italian union officials with whom I have come into contact, I must single out Johann Marzani, who, in addition to sharing his own experiences and reflections, obtained practical assistance and valuable documentary and bibliographical material for my use at the Camera del Lavoro Territoriale di Parma.

I have on numerous occasions had recourse to the specialist knowledge of Dr Tom Keenoy and Dr David Simpson in the field of industrial relations. Their valuable comments have served to sharpen my own observations, and on more than one occasion have helped me avoid potentially hazardous pitfalls. I am indebted to my colleagues Professor Lynn Mainwaring and Mr David Blackaby who adised me on matters relating to labour statistics used in the Appendix.

I am grateful for the constant encouragement and support of Dott.ssa Maria Giovanna Motta, who also read the entire manuscript and drew my attention to numerous problems of style, expression and meaning. I have learned much from my numerous and lengthy discussions with Dott.ssa Chiara Sfondrini, whose lively and critical intelligence I have shamelessly exploited on matters ranging from the broadest political issues to the detailed interpretation and exegesis of congress speeches.

Professor F. J. Jones is one of those rare colleagues and friends who knows how to combine the most trenchant criticism with constructive encouragement and support. No lapse in style, expression or reasoning escapes his attention. I can hardly begin to express my gratitude for the characteristically good-natured manner in which he has read one draft after another, filling their pages with comments, suggestions or corrections. Any shortcomings which remain are entirely my own responsibility.

The School of European Studies, University of Wales, College of Cardiff, kindly awarded me a research grant for the purpose of continuing my research in Italy throughout the summer of 1990.

Grateful thanks are due to the staff of the Biblioteca Archivio Nazionale Cgil in Rome, and in particular to Dott.ssa Teresa Corridori who has been of continual assistance on my numerous visits to the centre over recent years. Similarly, thanks are due to
