    Skyhorse Publishing 2014; US$ 27.95

    It was the war that changed everything, and yet it?s been mostly forgotten: in 1935, Italy invaded Ethiopia. It dominated newspaper headlines and newsreels.

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 73.95

    Since unification, Italy has grown from a backward agrarian society into one of the world's leading industrial powers.

  • Die Leidenschaft des Königsby Hannelore Putz

    C.H. Beck 2014; US$ 20.87

    Wie wirkmächtig die Leidenschaft Ludwigs I. für die Kunst war, lässt die Würdigung des Parlamentsausschusses in London im Jahr 1836 erahnen, die Bayern als ?classic country of the arts? adelte. Hatte Ludwig bereits als Kronprinz im Rahmen seiner Möglichkeiten keine Kosten gescheut, Kunstwerke zu erwerben und Künstler zu fördern, so geriet ihm als König... more...

  • Benito Mussoliniby Wolfgang Schieder

    C.H. Beck 2014; US$ 8.34

    Benito Mussolini war ein ungewöhnlich gewalttätiger Mensch und ein extrem wandelbarer Politiker. Vom radikalen Sozialisten wurde er zum Schöpfer des Faschismus.

Die Doppelherrschaft mit den gegensätzlichen Kräften des rechtsextremen Faschismus und der nationalkonservativen... more...

  • Italy 1530-1630by Eric Cochrane

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 77.95

    This book covers one of the more obscure periods of Italian history. What we know of it is presented almost always pejoratively: an unrelieved tale of political absolution, rural refeudalisation, economic crisis, religious repression and cultural decline. But this picture is both incomplete and inaccurate, and in this important new survey Eric Cochrane... more...
