While the historical significance of fascism and anti-fascism is still being hotly debated in Europe and around the world, this anthology offers a new look at the many faces of repression and resistance. Stanislao G. Pugliese brings together a wide range of voices that illuminate more than eighty years of fascism and anti-fascism in Italy. Many of the pieces, including letters from women to Mussolini and anti-fascist graffiti from a Nazi prison in Rome, are available in English for the first time. The selections include historical documents, political analysis, stories, songs, and memoirs from a variety of perspectives. Taken together, the documents provide a compelling account of the political, historical, economic, and social impact of fascism and the resistance. Touching on fields as far ranging as political science, history, women's studies, and religion, Fascism, Anti-Fascism, and the Resistance in Italy is immediate, human, and eminently readable.

Stanislao Pugliese has done an admirable job in putting together a series of texts that will offer students of Italian culture an overview of some of the most crucial years of the nation's history. (David Ward)
In one volume readers will find illuminating texts from Italian Fascism and Italian Anti-Fascism, as well as some of the most important historical research on both movements. A valuable resource for scholars and students alike. (Ruth Ben-Ghiat, New York University)
Professor Pugliese's extremely useful anthology offers the reader a wide range of documents and recent interpretations of fascism and its opponents. What makes the collection especially valuable is the inclusion of many previously untranslated documents. Pugliese's approach brings together the fascists and their opponents in an ongoing critical dialogue. The reader will take from this anthology both an overview of Italian fascism as an historical phenomenon and a sense of how the issues were viewed by those who lived through the Fascist dictatorship.
