Summary

Summary

Drake's study of politics and culture in Umbertian Italy focuses on the political thought and activity of a highly intellectual group of reactionary intellectuals whose politics were a nostalgic appeal to the Mazzinian vision of the Third Rome. By 1900 a fresh ideological alternative had developed for the right-wing intellectuals--nationalism. It was an important link between the traditions of conservative protest and the ideology of fascism.
