Anyone interested in the entire sweep of political thought over the last hundred years will find in Norberto Bobbio's Ideological Profile of Twentieth-Century Italy a masterful, thought-provoking guide. Home to the largest communist party in a democratic society, Italy has been a unique place politically, one where Christian democrats, liberals, fascists, socialists, communists, and others have co-existed in sizable numbers. In this book, Bobbio, who himself played an outstanding role in the development of Italian civic culture, follows each of the major ideologies, explaining how they developed, describing the key actors, and considering the legacies they left to political culture. He wrote Ideological Profile in 1968 to explain from a personal perspective the history behind that decade's tumultuous politics. Bobbio's defense of democracy and critique of capitalism are among the themes that will particularly interest American readers of this updated edition, the first to appear in English.

Beginning in the late nineteenth century with positivism and Marxism, Bobbio next presents the ideological currents that developed before the outbreak of the First World War: Catholic, socialist, irrational and anti-democratic thought, the reaction against positivism, and the thinking of Benedetto Croce. After discussing the impact of the war, the author turns to the revolutionary-reactionary polarization of the postwar period and the ideology of fascism. The final chapters consider Croce's opposition to fascism and the ideals of the resistance and conclude with the post-Second World War "Years of Involvement."

Very Old Chap
Norberto Bobbio's views of its 20th century Italy,of his maestri and compagni of the Partito d'Azioni but also Benedetto Croce, Luigi Einaudi, Carlo Rosselli, Piero Gobetti or Bettino Craxi, allow us a very interesting, fluent and detailled reading of Italy most recent decades. With a remarkable translation by Lydia Cochrane, this English edition put us in the presence of the impressive saga of Italian liberal and socialist intellectuals, first against Mussolini fascist regime and after 1945 facing the two larger mass-parties, the Christian Democrats and the Communist Party. This was a struggle for political survival but as Bobbio remarks a «third way» escape in the 40s was unfeasable and inadeqaute to the political momentum. Although a Left and socialist intellectual, Bobbio stands most surprising along the liberal European tradition of one Stuart Mill, an Alexis de Tocqueville or more modernly with Karl Popper, Ralf Dahrendorf, Hans Kelsen or Maurice Duverger individual paths for an enlarged and political liberties-based constitutional and market western democracy. This book enlightned us about some of the personalities that Bobbio admired or was related in the almost four decades but also with the political stuggles that took place in Italy till most recently. A man of liberty, reason and tolerance, Bobbio's philosophical thought remains almost unknowned within Political science community. What it is a pity. Its correspondance with Hans Kelsen, Carl Schmitt, Perry Anderson, Karl Popper or Michael Waltzer remains mostly unrevealed and it is a benchmark in present political thought. Anyone interested in comprehending Silvio Berlusconi rightwing present rulling of Italian politics should be aware of this book.
I would hearthly also recommend:''The Future of Democracy'', ''Thomas Hobbes and the Natural Law Tradition''or ''In Praise of Meekness''for aditional reading of Bobbio's views and express wishes for new editions of Bobbio's recent books namely its collection of political essays, «Verso la seconda republica» or «L'Utopia capovolta» about the falling of the Cold War era.
Gom
Norberto Bobbio's views on its 20th century Italy, his maestri and compagni of the Partito d'Azioni and also Benedetto Croce, Luigi Einaudi, Carlo Rosselli, Piero Gobetti or Bettino Craxi, included in this book - best qualified as a memoir - allow us a very interesting and detailled reading of Italy most recent history. With a remarkable translation by Lydia Cochrane this English edition put us in contact with the impressive saga of Italian liberal and socialist intellectuals, first against Mussolini fascist regime and after 1945'liberation against the two larger mass-parties, the Christian Democrats and the Communist Party. Although a man of the political Left and a socialist, Bobbio reviews himself, along almost a century of life, in the the liberal European tradition that comes from people like Stuart Mill or Tocqueville. Tradition that enlarges with Karl Popper, Ralf Dahrendorf, Hans Kelsen or Maurice Duverger contribution to the study of democracy and constitutional systems. This book give us a clear discreption of some of the personalities Bobbio admired or lived within the intellectual circles of its Italy. A man of liberty, reason and tolerance, Bobbio's philosophical thought remains almost unknowned within Political science and ethic politics.Its correspondance with Hans Kelsen, Carl Schmitt, Perry Anderson, Karl Popper or Michael Waltzer remains mostly unrevealed. I would recomend also ''The Future of Democracy'', ''Thomas Hobbes and the Natural Law Tradition'' and ''In Praise of Meekness''.
