Ideological profile of twentieth-century Italy by Norberto Bobbio( Book )
11 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Home to the largest communist party in a democratic society, Italy has been a unique place politically, one where Christian democrats, fascists, socialists, communists, and others have coexisted 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 their legacies. He wrote Ideological Profile in 1968 to explain 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

Nella premessa alla prima edizione di questo libro, Bobbio osservava come i regimi democratici, almeno in Europa, si fossero andati estendendo e come il mondo sovietico fosse scosso da fremiti democratici. Oggi, quanto veniva annunciato sembra essersi compiuto, ma proprio per questo è necessario tornare a una visione realistica e disincantata delle "trasformazioni" e dei "limiti" di un sistema che ha sempre in agguato i pericoli della rivincita degli interessi particolari, della persistenza delle oligarchie, della educazione dei cittadini
