Modern Italy's Founding Fathers offers a fresh perspective on the genesis of the Italian republic as viewed through the efforts of its three most influential leaders: Christian Democrat Alcide De Gasperi, Socialist Pietro Nenni and Communist Palmiro Togliatti. De Gasperi, the central figure of the study, served as the Republic's inaugural prime minister from 1945 to 1953. In concise, accessible prose, this work demonstrates how De Gasperi and his fellow statesmen's shared experience of Fascist oppression, belief in popular sovereignty, and ability to compromise despite deep ideological differences, enabled the creation of Italy's post-war republic.This collective biography is the first work of its kind in English to examine the genesis of the Italian Republic, commencing with the overthrow of Mussolini in 1943 and concluding with De Gasperi's death in 1954. The study considers the nature of the three mass political parties that emerged at this time as sources of both strength and weakness for the nascent post-war state. Drawing on the personal papers, speeches and writings of the three protagonists, on governmental and party archives, and on significant new Italian secondary scholarship, Steven White demonstrates how these leaders forged political practices and customs which continue to define Italian parliamentary life to the present day. Examining the interplay of personalities, leadership styles, ideas and political context, the work is a vital text for any student of modern Italy and, more broadly, of Cold War Europe.

A comprehensive discussion and analysis of two and a half millennia of Western political theory   In the absence of noble public goals, admired leaders, and compelling issues, many warn of a dangerous erosion of civil society, which includes families, religious organizations, and all other NGOs. Are they right? What are the roots and implications of their insistent alarm? How can public life be enriched in a period marked by fraying communities, widespread apathy, and unprecedented levels of contempt for politics? How should we be thinking about civil society?            In Civil Society: The Critical History of an Idea, John Ehrenberg analyzes both the usefulness and the limitations of civil society and maps the political and theoretical evolution of the concept and its employment in academic and public discourse. From Aristotle and the Enlightenment philosophers to Black Lives Matter and the Occupy movement, Ehrenberg provides an indispensable analysis of the possibilities of what this increasingly important idea can, and cannot, offer to contemporary political affairs.              In this new, second edition Ehrenberg brings the historical overview up to present day, specifically considering how major events such as 9/11, the global financial crisis, economic inequality, and rapidly advancing technologies alter and shape our relationship to contemporary civil society. Civic engagement, political participation, and volunteerism in contemporary life has faded, he argues, and in order to bring civil society—and all its virtues—back to the fore, we need to counter the suffocating  inequality that has taken hold in recent years.  Thorough and accessible, Civil Society gives a sweeping overview of a foundational part of political life.

“An absorbing portrait...Breen’s superb chronicle offers glimpses into Washington’s love of his country and its people, and his willingness to meet them on their own terms to secure the unity of the new republic.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) This is George Washington in the surprising role of political strategist.T.H. Breen introduces us to a George Washington we rarely meet. During his first term as president, he decided that the only way to fulfill the Revolution was to take the new federal government directly to the people. He organized an extraordinary journey carrying him to all thirteen states. It transformed American political culture. For Washington, the stakes were high. If the nation fragmented, as it had almost done after the war, it could never become the strong, independent nation for which he had fought. In scores of communities, he communicated a powerful and enduring message—that America was now a nation, not a loose collection of states. And the people responded to his invitation in ways that he could never have predicted.
