Description & Features+
This book aims to provide an overview of Italian foreign policy from the moment of unification to the establishment of the European Union.áThree turning points are crucial in order to clarify Italy?s foreign policy: 1861, the proclamation of the Italian Kingdom; 1943, when Italy surrendered in World War II; 1992, the signing of the Maastricht Treaty.áThe international position of Italy continues to be an enigma for many observers and this fuels misinterpretations and prejudices.áThis book argues that Italy is differentábut not divergent from other European countries. Italian elites have traditionally seen foreign policy as an instrument to secure the state and import models for development. Italy can still contribute to international security and theástrengtheningáof the EU. At the same time, Italy is not a pure adaptive country and has always maintained a critical attitude towards the international system in which it is incorporated.á
