MAZZINI by Stringfellow Barr


Email this review


A solid, thorough, well documented biography of the man to whom the unification of Italy was a lifelong dream -- and who spent most of his life in exile. In spite of which fact, he proved a powerful force, and caused constant friction and worry because he seemed always out of step with the movement of the moment, and at odds with Metternich, with Garibaldi, with Cavour. Popular appeal very slight. Sell to colleges -- large public libraries.
