- About this book
A political biography of this Sicilian statesman, based on a majority of unpublished documents, this study reconstructs the government project Francesco Crispi attempted to realize once he became Premier. A project of ‘authoritarian democracy’ that remained unfinished due to his own innermost contradictions and resistance opposed by the same leading class and the new political and social subjects of end 19th century Italy.
