CATTANEO, Carlo. Civilization and Democracy : The Salvernini Anthology of Cattaneo's Writings. Edited and introduced by Carlo G. Lacaita and Filippo Sabetti. Translated by David Gibbons. Toronto, Buffalo, London: University of Toronto Press, (2006). First Edition. Pp. (4),[v]-xiii,(3),3-283,(7). 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. In the Lorenzo Da Ponte ItalianLibrary series. General editors: Luigi Ballerini and Massimo Ciavolella. " Nineteenth-century Italy is a vast, unexplored territory in the history of modern political thought and liberal democratic theory. Apart from Mazzini,Pareto, and Mosca, the authors of this period are little read, even though their central concerns - the riddle of human liberation, progress, and lib erty - are as important today as ever. This volume presents a selection of the writings of Carlo Cattaneo (1801-1869), one of the period's most important thinkers, as selected by an equally important personage of a subsequenttime, the anti-Fascist intellectual Gaetano Salvemini. Cattaneo had a prof ound sense of the historical contingencies underlying the quest both to understand human affairs and to realize a self-governing society. Cattaneo's ideas and framework of analysis - like those of John Stuart Mill and Alexis de Tocqueville - were not shaped by a narrow intra-academic agenda but by the great social, economic, and political transformations of his time. The issues he addressed included problems of revolution, reform, and change in the passage to modernity, which extended far beyond the confines of nineteenth-century Italy. The selection of original pieces presented in this translation is preceded by an introduction by the editors, Carlo G. Lacaita and Filippo Sabetti, which guides the reader through Cattaneo's thinking and puts it in a comparative context. While bringing these writings to a broader audience, this anthology shows not only the range of Cattaneo's interests, but allso the astuteness and sensitivity he brought to his subjects." - fromthe dj.
