Product Details


“In the tradition of Ginzburg’s work as a narrative historian, sculpting story-like shapes out of ancient and unexamined pasts, he offers the reader the evidence, giving the public the tools to examine this modern ongoing history.”—Bomb

“In its brilliance and force, Ginzburg’s attack on magisterial malfeasance equals the war of Emile Zola one hundred years ago.”—Choice

“Italy’s foremost historian, Carlo Ginzburg—and the publication of his book—has rocked the foundations of the Italian legal system … Ginzburg is the type of historian who revels in detective work … he has sleuthed and deduced with tenacity and the finely tuned sensory apparatus of a bloodhound.”—Financial Times
