The Encyclopedia of Italian Literary Studies is a two-volume reference book containing some 600 entries on all aspects of Italian literary culture. It includes analytical essays on authors and works, from the most important figures of Italian literature to little known authors and works that are influential to the field. The Encyclopedia is distinguished by substantial articles on critics, themes, genres, schools, historical surveys, and other topics related to the overall subject of Italian literary studies. The Encyclopedia also includes writers and subjects of contemporary interest, such as those relating to journalism, film, media, children's literature, food and vernacular literatures. Entries consist of an essay on the topic and a bibliographic portion listing works for further reading, and, in the case of entries on individuals, a brief biographical paragraph and list of works by the person. It will be useful to people without specialized knowledge of Italian literature as well as to scholars.

Scritto a caldo nel 1978, questo libro non ha che guadagnato con gli anni. Mentre, in una nobile gara di codardia, i politici italiani, nonché i giornalisti, si affannavano a dichiarare che le lettere di Moro dalla prigionia erano opera di un pazzo o comunque prive di valore perché risultanti da una costrizione, Sciascia si azzardò a leggerle, con l’acume e lo scrupolo che sempre aveva verso qualsiasi documento. Riuscì in tal modo, sulla base di quelle lettere, a ricostruire una intelaiatura di pensieri, di correlazioni, di fatti che sono, fino a oggi, ciò che più ci ha permesso di capire, o di avvicinarci a capire, un episodio orribile della nostra storia. Presentando il libro nella sua ultima edizione (1983), Sciascia scriveva opportunamente «questo libro potrebbe anche esser letto come “opera letteraria”. Ma l’autore – come membro della Commissione parlamentare d’inchiesta sulla “affaire” – ha continuato a viverlo come “opera di verità” e perciò lo si ripubblica (non più col rischio delle polemiche, ma del silenzio) con l’aggiunta della relazione di minoranza (di assoluta minoranza) presentata in Commissione e al Parlamento. Una relazione che l’autore ha voluto al possibile stringare, nella speranza abbia la sorte di esser largamente letta: qual di solito non hanno le voluminosissime relazioni che vengono fuori dalle inchieste parlamentari».

Cultural Writing. Political Science. Translated from the Italian by Jeremy Parzen Aaron Thomas. In this history of Italian culture and philosophy from the founding of the Italian Republic to the present day, philosopher Remo Bodei examines Italian society in one of the most exhilarating and intriguing periods of its history. Following World War II and the defeat of Fascism, the reconstruction of the country and onset of the Cold War brought new challenges to Italy. The Italian people--whose sense of national identity has always been precarious--were divided between the competing political passions and ideologies of Catholicism and Communism, and compelled to negotiate these differences against the backdrop of both American cultural and economic hegemony and the utopian enticements of a more equitable society purportedly represented by the Soviet Union. Alternating between imaginative historical research and sharp theoretical analysis, Bodei reconstructs this process of cultural negotiation, showing how the ethos of the Italian people was parsed in specific spheres, such as the family, the military, political parties, religion, the judiciary, and organized crime. He examines both the ways in which philosophers have sought to make sense of the ethical and political problems the Italian people have had to confront, as well as the decisions effectively taken by individuals and groups. Bodei concludes with some reflections upon the difficulties and challenges that Italy faces in an increasingly interdependent world.

Aldo Moro's kidnapping and violent death in 1978 had much the same effect in Italy as the assassination of President John F. Kennedy had in the United States, with both cases giving rise to endless conspiracy theories. In his thorough account of the long and anguished quest for justice in the Moro murder case, Richard Drake provides a detailed portrait of the tragedy and its aftermath as complex symbols of a turbulent age in Italian history.

Postmodern Ethics offers a new perspective on debates surrounding the role of the intellectual in Italian society, and provides an original reading of two important Italian contemporary writers, Leonardo Sciascia and Antonio Tabucchi. It examines the ways in which the two writers use literature to engage with their socio-political environment in a climate informed by the doubts and scepticism of postmodernism, after traditional forms of impegno had been abandoned. Postmodern Ethics explores ways in which Tabucchi and Sciascia further their engagement through embracing the very factors which problematized traditional committed writing, such as the absence of fixed truths, the inability of language to fully communicate ideas and intertextuality. Postmodern Ethics provides an innovative new reading of Tabucchi’s works. It challenges the standard view in critical literature that his writing may be divided into ‘engaged’ texts which dialogue with society and ‘postmodern’ texts which focus on literary interiority, suggesting instead that socio-political engagement underpins all of his works. It also offers a new lens on Sciascia’s writing, unpacking why Sciascia, unlike his contemporaries, is able to maintain a belief in literature as a means of dialoguing with society. Postmodern Ethics explores the ways in which Tabucchi and Sciascia approach issues of terrorism, justice, the anti-mafia movement, immigration and the value of reading in connected yet distinct ways, suggesting that a close genealogy may be drawn between these two key intellectual figures.
