Italian nationalism was a deeply divisive issue in both Britain and Ireland. While British evangelicals, radicals and liberals and (for a time) Irish nationalists embraced the Italian national struggle, many conservatives and most British and Irish Catholics stood opposed. This groundbreaking collection of essays explores the role of religion, politics, culture and the British-Irish semi-colonial relationship in shaping British and Irish reactions to Italian unification. In particular, it examines the nature and significance of transnational Mazzinian networks in Britain and Ireland during and after the Risorgimento, and the part played by Italian exiles in the construction of the 'Italian question' on both sides of the Irish Sea. It also analyses early British impressions of united Italy, and later Italian support for an 'Irish Risorgimento'.
