The essays collected in this volume explore the multiple connections and parallels between the histories of the American south and the Italian south. Leading historians of the two regions consider the comparability of issues as diverse as the stereotypes relating to the two souths, the ideology of the landed elites, the treatment of labourers on large landed estates, the importance of gender in the understanding of social relations, and the connections between progressive political forces and between migratory movements across the two sides of the Atlantic.
