A Civil War: A History of the Italian Resistance

A Civil War: A History of the Italian Resistance


“The most important essay on the Resistance.” (
La Stampa )
“Passionate and fascinating, well documented in the slightest detail, radical in its themes and solutions. And it is also, in some regards, definitive, the final end of an ideal historiographical tradition begun with Battaglia in his
Storia della Resistenza Italiana in 1964.” (Marco Revelli -
L’Indice )
“An essential book—the best book on the Resistance to date—which changes the way we look at that phenomenon, engaging dispassionately with its key and controversial moments: the , violence, ideology, the relationship with the allies.” (
La Repubblica )
“There have not been, in the past few years, many books on history and politics that have sparked such a vast and heated debate as the one arising with the publication of
A Civil War by Claudio Pavone.” (Norberto Bobbio )
“An essential book on the Resistance struggle.” (
Corriere della Sera )
