REVIEW The Force of Destiny A History of Italy Since 1796

SUMMARY The Force of Destiny A History of Italy Since 1796 107 With Italian reality After great sacrifice Italy was finally unified and turned out to be just as fragile impoverished and backward as it had been before The resentments this created led to Italy’s destructive role in World War I the subseuent rise of Mussolini and authoritarianism in the 1920s and ’30s and the nation's humiliating defeat in World War II This haunting legacy deeply informs the Italy of todayChristopher Duggan skillfully interweaves. This excellent book is not so much a history of Italy as it is a history of the nation of Italy As Christopher Duggan demonstrates Italian nationalism was confined to a few intellectuals artists and professionals with regional identities predominant among the rest of the population As a result unification was superficial for much of the populace who often found themselves at odds with the liberal state and forced to choose between this artificial link and their much deeper seated loyalty to the Catholic Church This approach helps make the appeal of Fascism much understandable with Duggan s analysis of this period one of the strongest points of this book In the end the reader is left with a deeper understanding of the problems Italy faces today and perhaps as well a skepticism about the ability of Italians to address them in the future
