The Italian Road to Socialism: An Interview With Giorgio Napolitano of the Italian Communist Party

By Eric Hobsbawm
Lawrence Hill, 1977
118 pp. $5.95
Purchase

An English Marxist historian sympathetically interviews a leading intellectual of the Italian Communist Party: the discussion ranges broadly and gives an important insight into the thought and policy of the PCI. In part, Napolitano offers variations on Togliatti's statement: "From democracy we want to take nothing; we want to add to it many things." Predictably, a rather sanguine or tame view of the PCI emerges.
