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».

The 1978 kidnapping and murder of Christian Democrat politician, Aldo Moro, marked the watershed of Italy's experience of political violence in the period known as the 'years of lead' (1969-c.1983). This uniquely interdisciplinary volume explores the evolving legacy of Moro's death in the Italian cultural imaginary, from the late 1970s to the present. Bringing a wide range of critical perspectives to bear, interventions by experts in the fields of political science, social anthropology, philosophy, and cultural critique elicit new understandings of the events of 1978 and explain their significance and relevance to present-day Italian culture and society.

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.

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.

This book is about literary representations of the both left- and right-wing Italian terrorism of the 1970s by contemporary Italian authors. In offering detailed analyses of the many contemporary novels that have terrorism in either their foreground or background, it offers a “take” on postmodern narrative practices that is alternative to and more positive than the highly critical assessment of Italian postmodernism that has characterized some sectors of current Italian literary criticism. It explores how contemporary Italian writers have developed narrative strategies that enable them to represent the fraught experience of Italian terrorism in the 1970s. In its conclusions, the book suggests that to meet the challenge of representation posed by terrorism fiction rather than fact is the writer’s best friend and most effective tool.
