About the Author

Paul Ginsborg taught at Cambridge before becoming professor of contemporary European history at the University of Florence. He has become vigorously involved in Italian civic affairs, especially in reaction to Silvio Berlusconi, and his critical biography of Berlusconi reached the top of the Italian non-fiction bestseller charts. He is also the author of A History of Contemporary Italy and Italy and Its Discontents.

Reviews

"Succinct and lucid. . . . Ginsborg is best known for his authoritative surveys of postwar Italy. . . . In recent years Mr. Ginsborg has been a protagonist in the movement to strengthen Italian civil society and reconfigure the Italian left to meet the challenge of defeating Mr. Berlusconi."-The New York Times, review of Berlusconi

"At the heart of the book is an analysis of 'everyday' politics and what kind of links can be established between individual choices and global politics. Ginsborg's themes are relevant to the politics of many countries, particularly those in Europe and North America."--Andrew Gamble, Sheffield University
