Lorella Cedroni's book offers an excellent opportunity for English-speaking readers to follow the dialog between Italian intellectuals about the relationship (positive or negative) between capitalism and democracy. Cedroni has skillfully drawn out the main themes and positions in this debate, illustrating them with essays by such writers as Pareto, Gramsci, and Bobbio. -- Martin Staniland, University of Pittsburgh
