Publisher's Synopsis

" . . . a very fair and intelligent description of the vicissitudes of the two parties and students seeking a readable and jargon-free overview of the subject-matter should be directed to this text." -History
"De Grand's study is exceptional in its comprehensive historical perspective . . . a revealing and evocative synthesis." -Marion S. Miller
"De Grand is a useful guide to the complex history of the Italian left." -Thomas R. Brooks, New York City Tribune
"An excellent overview of the vital Italian left-wing . . . " -Book Reader
"This is a well-written, readable, rather detailed though not ponderous, discussion of the politics of the parties of the Italian Left in this century up to the present time." -Perspective
" . . . will add immeasurably to our understanding of and appreciation for a country tormented at various times in the past century." -Mediterranean Quarterly
" . . . well-written and extensively researched . . . De Grand illustrates a clear and obvious path of development on the Italian left . . . " -L'Italo-Americano
"It is . . . a pleasure to note the appearance of Alexander De Grand's book . . . By providing an almost side-by-side summary of the thought and action of both parties . . . De Grand renders a unique contribution." -American Historical Review
" . . . a good starting point for students of Italian history and politics, as well as anyone with an interest in the modern European Left. . . . It offers both a solid introduction to, and a persuasive interpretation of, its subject." -Journal of Modern History
De Grand chronicles the history of the Italian Socialist and Communist parties-natural allies yet also enemies, in the struggle to reform society.
