Product Details


“Succinct and lucid … this small book has a large agenda: to show what in contemporary Italian culture produced and promoted Berlusconi, as entrepreneur and prime minister, and what might be done to hasten his political end.”—International Herald Tribune

“Carefully researched … a notable contribution.”—Financial Times

“Damning … Ginsborg shows how Berlusconi’s combination of anti-political populism and media power makes him a real threat to democracy.”—Independent

“Ginsborg’s sober, thoughtful book will be of value not only to anyone interested in Italy but to anyone interested in how populist politics, money, and control of the mass media’s reservoir of fantasy can combine to override the democratic process.”—The Nation

“A succinct and lucid account.”—New York Times

“Penetrating and disquieting … A masterly study by the leading British historian of contemporary Italy.”—Times Literary Supplement

“A compelling hatchet job … Admirable precision and succinctness.”—Sunday Times
