Lovers of Italy will value this warm, and in many places personal, appreciation of the country's cultural and political history. Count Sforza is living proof that humanism and liberalism have deep roots in the Italian way of life, and his book will provide ample documentation for those who believe that, despite the degradation of 22 years of Fascist rule, a free and decent Italy can rise again.
