This book by one of the most distinguished historians of Italy is the first modern biography in English of Giuseppe Mazzini, one of the leading figures in the political and intellectual world of mid-nineteenth-century Europe. Denis Mack Smith re-examines Mazzini's ideological impact and portrays him as a vigorous proponent of patriotism, a preeminent figure in the struggle for Italian independence and unity, and a fascinating personality, whose ideas brought him into contact with Marx, Carlyle, Mill and Bakunin
