Italy's Divided Memory (Italian and Italian American Studies)

3.25 of 5 stars 3.25  ·  rating details  ·  4 ratings  ·  0 reviews

In this groundbreaking study, John Foot argues that contemporary Italian history has been marked by a tendency towards divided memory. Events have been interpreted in contrasting ways, and the facts themselves often contested. Moreover, with so little agreement over what happened, and why it happened, it has been extremely difficult to create any consensus around memory.
