Description

This work is an account, translated from the English original, of a debate between Salvemini and Roselli that took place on January 22, 1927 in New York under the auspices of the Foreign Policy Association on the theme of "Italy under Fascism."

Salvemini (1873-1957) was a towering intellectual figure among Italian anti-fascists in the U.S. for the entire fascist era. There are several works by him in the collection, one published by Carlo Tresca's Il Martello, and the others by (and in issues of) Controcorrente of Boston, the anti-fascist group with which he was most associated while a professor of history at Harvard.

He acquired his reputation as an imminent historian and a politician in Italy, and was exiled by the Mussolini government. He established his credentials upon graduation from the University of Florence, where his work included medieval Florence, the French revolution and Giuseppe Mazzini.

Salvemini watched is wife, five children and a sister perish before his eyes in the earthquake of 1908 in Messina. He held several appointments at other universities, culminating in his appointment in Florence in 1916. He was associated with the Partito Socialista Italiano for many years. In exile, he continued to organize resistance to Mussolini in France, England and finally the U.S.
