1 Barzini, Luigi The Italians
New York, New York, U.S.A. Atheneum 1979 0689705409 / 9780689705403 Paperback Very Good 
352 ppg including index and maps. Clean overall. Top right front cover bumped. "In this consummate portrait of the Italian people, bestselling author, publisher, journalist, and politician Luigi Barzini delves deeply into the Italian national character, discovering both its great qualities and its imperfections. Barzini is startlingly frank as he examines "the two Italies": the one that created and nurtured such luminaries as Dante Alighieri, St. Thomas of Aquino, and Leonardo da Vinci; the other, feeble and prone to catastrophe, backward in political action if not in thought, "invaded, ravaged, sacked, and humiliated in every century." Deeply ambivalent, Barzini approaches his task with a combination of love, hate, disillusion, and affectionate paternalism, resulting in a completely original, thoughtful, and probing picture of his countrymen."Trade Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
