Praise

“Pavone’s great work is among the few indisputable masterpieces of contemporary history. But more than this, it is a unique meditation on the passions and tensions that continue to swirl beneath the surface of modern politics.” —Mark Mazower, Financial Times

“Very few books change an entire perspective on a crucial period of history. Claudio Pavone’s A Civil War is one of those books … [This] edition of Pavone’s masterpiece is something to be cherished.” —Times Literary Supplement

“The most beautiful book written to date on the Italian Resistance.” —L’Unità

“An essential book on the Resistance struggle.” —Corriere della Sera

“The most important essay on the Resistance.” —La Stampa

“An essential book—the best book on the Resistance to date – which changes the way we look at that phenomenon, engaging dispassionately with its key and controversial moments: the civil war, violence, ideology, the relationship with the allies.” —La Repubblica

“Passionate and fascinating, well documented in the slightest detail, radical in its themes and solutions. And it is also, in some regards, definitive, the final end of an ideal historiographical tradition begun with Battaglia in his Storia della Resistenza Italiana in 1964.” —Marco Revelli, L’Indice

“There have not been, in the past few years, many books on history and politics that have sparked such a vast and heated debate as the one arising with the publication of A Civil War by Claudio Pavone.” —Norberto Bobbio, author of The Future of Democracy
