Cavour by Harry Hearder( Book )

The process of Italian unification cannot be understood without an understanding of the remarkable career and personality of the man who was perhaps its chief protagonist, Count Camillo di Cavour. Born in Turin in 1810, Cavour abandoned an early military career because of his uncomfortable liberal opinions, to concentrate initially on restoring his family estates. After travels in France and England, he was drawn increasingly into the politics of his native Piedmont - then a backward and insignificant state, still reeling from comprehensive military defeat by Austria, the major occupying power of northern Italy. In 1852 he became its prime minister. Under Cavour's astute direction, Piedmont began to play an active role in European power politics, rapidly building up alliances and obligations, particularly with France and Britain, which were to stand her in vital stead when the struggle with Austria erupted again in 1859. The defeat of Austria (with French arms) and the acquiescence of the European Great Powers allowed the longstanding dream of a pan-Italian state to become a reality. In the year of his death (1861), less than a decade after he became prime minister in Turin, Cavour had become the first prime minister of the newly-united Kingdom of Italy, with Piedmont as its nucleus
Italy in the age of the Risorgimento, 1790-1870 by Harry Hearder( Book )

38 editions published between 1980 and 2016 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the past, historians have tended to regard the history of nineteenth-century Italy solely in terms of the epic story of the securing of national independence and unity. Since the Second World War, hoever, they have played down the drama and glamour of the Risorgimento to ask searching questions about the aims and achievements of its protagonists. Professor Hearder strikes a balance between the two approaches. He gives full recognition to the brilliant and rapid achievement of Italian nationalism, and to the colourful figures who dominated the age - men like Mazzini, Cavour, Garibaldi and Pius IX; but at the same time he explores the deeper issues exposed by recent historical research. Moreover his book is not simply a study of the Risorgimento itself, central though that is to the story; rather it is a broad-ranging survey of the whole peninsula in which regional diversity and historical continuity have as important a place as the quest for national unity and the spirit of change. -- from back cover
