`Stefano Zamagni, 51, is considered a world expert on economics and recently even became a consultant to the anti-Mafia agency of the Italian government. Considered one of Italy's most brilliant economists.'
Paul Bompard, Times Higher Education Supplement
'a nicely written and stimulating account of the progress of the Italian economy since unification ... As well as serving as an fine synthesis of recent writing in Italian economic historiography, the book also bears witness to the enormous and varied output of its author over the last two decades ... thoughtful and wide-ranging analysis, replete with excellent data ... European economic historians will surely welcome this book with open arms.'
Joseph Harrison, University of Manchester, Economic History Society 1995
`It is a remarkable transformation; the energy of its historiography has matched that of the country's development ... the work is rich in information about the sectoral development of manufacturing, copiously illustrated from the history of major companies. It also deals comprehensively with the convoluted history of the banking sector ... infused with Professor Zamagni's indefatigable and attractive enthusiasm for her subject and seasoned with much lively
personal commentary. It can be highly recommended and should go in several copies on to library shelves.'
Journal of Modern Italian Studies The most welcome translation of Professor Zamagni's Dalla periferia al centro ... makes available to the broader English-speaking community a text that reviews the current literature with unexceptionable thoroughness, and presents even the interpretations that differ from the author's own with admirable fair-mindedness. The publisher andthe author are both to be commended for producing this much-needed book; with periodic revisions to keep it up to
date, it should serve for a generation.
American Historical Review Detailed and chronologically extended survey of Italy's economic history from unification to the present ... Combining breadth with clarity of presentation and well-balanced judgements, this is an indispensable guide for students of modern Italy and for all those interested in the comparative study of modern economic growth.
