Originally published in 1936, this book forms the second part of an ambitious three-volume series on the movement towards Italian nationality and independence. Covering the period between June 1846 and January 1848, it provides a rigorous analysis of key historical events, which is maintained by a highly readable narrative style. This is a work of profound scholarship, informed by first-hand contact with leading Italian authorities on the subject, including some of those involved in the processes described. It will be a valuable resource for anyone with an interest in Italian history and the revolutionary spirit of the nineteenth century.
