The Politics of Everyday Life in Fascist Italy: Outside the State? (Italian and Italian American Studies) by Joshua Arthurs
English | 10 Feb. 2017 | ISBN: 1137594187 | 280 Pages | PDF | 1.63 MB

This book explores the complex ways in which people lived and worked within the confines of Benito Mussolini’s regime in Italy, variously embracing, appropriating, accommodating and avoiding the regime’s incursions into everyday life. The contributions highlight the experiences of ordinary Italians – midwives and schoolchildren, colonists and soldiers – over the course of the Fascist era, in settings ranging from the street to the farm, and from the kitchen to the police station. At the same time, this volume also provides a framework for understanding the Italian experience in relation to other totalitarian dictatorships in twentieth-century Europe and beyond.
