Summary
"Confirming Eric J. Hobsbawn's intuition that the twilight of nationhood is, in effect, leading to an increased attention to processes of nation-building and state-formation, Italy's foundational story has been the object of a revisiting so extensive that it merits close attention. The present volume is an effort in this direction. Without claiming to provide an exhaustive, overarching panorama, Risorgimento in Modern Italian Culture collects the work of scholars whose different methodologies and fields of specialty provide a starting point to appraise the enduring significance of the nineteenth-century past in modern Italy from a variety of traditional as well as hitherto less studied perspectives"--provided by publisher
