Summary
How did a man from the provinces become Europe's first fascist dictator? This second edition of a biography of Mussolini's private and political life, written by one of the world's leading authorities on modern Italian history, draws on fresh sources such as the diary of his last lover and details of his bigamous marriage. This edition also looks at the recent resurgence of interest in Mussolini in Italy today. The book is illustrated with b&w historical photos of Mussolini as a boy through his adulthood and death. Bosworth is professor of history at the University of Western Australia, and Reading University, UK. The book is distributed in the US by ISBS.
