Reviews & endorsements
'There is a fine introduction to the culture of the Renaissance and an equally positive account of the Risorgimento on which Hearder was such an expert … another well produced and illustrated book.' Robert Pearce, History TodaySee more reviews
'… there are few English historians of Italy who write with the same ease and clarity as Hearder. Equally, there are few who would be able to manage the trick, as Hearder does, of condensing 3,000 years of history into one slim volume while still providing the reader with a detailed narrative of events and personalities, and a sense of historical perspective. it is for these reasons that Italy: A Short History deserves a second outing.'
