Summary The Risorgimento was a turbulent and decisive period in the history of Italy. Lucy Riall's account tells of the upheavals of the years between 1815 and 1860, when a series of crises destabilized the states of Restoration Italy and led to the creation of a troubled nation state in 1860. Comprehensive, this textbook: examines the social history of 19th century Italy and the social context of political action; offers a critical overview of the historiography of the topic; takes account of the most recent literature, especially literature in Italian not normally accessible to students; adopts a broad thematic approach; and places the Italian experience in a European context
