Whilst favourable international circumstances were an essential prerequisite for the successful completion of the Risorgimento, they only permitted Piedmont to unify Italy but did not compel her to do so. The motive forces have to be sought within Italy and among Italians. They were, as has been seen, complex: various kinds and degrees of patriotism and idealism acted alongside dynastic calculation, sometimes amicably and sometimes not.
Mussolini and Fascist Italy
Where contemporaries were often in conflict we cannot expect historians to arrive at any comfortable consensus. So complex was the struggle for unification, and so strong are the emotions which it can still arouse, that its history will continue to be rewitten by each generation and from every political perspective.
Of the leading protagonists of the Risorgimento, Mazzini has been given sympathetic treatment in E. Four other Lancaster Pamphlets contain material related to that discussed here.

Overview In Mussolini and Fascist Italy Martin Blinkhorn explains the significance of the man, the movement and the regime which dominated Italian life between and the closing stages of the Second World War. He examines: those aspects of post-Risorgimento Italy which provided the long-term context vital to an understanding of Fascism, the social and political convulsions wrought by economic change after and by Italy's intervention in the First World War, the Fascist movement's rapid rise from obscurity to power and the subsequent establishment of Mussolini's dictatorship, the history of the Fascist regime until its demise during the Second World War, the ways in which Italian Fascism has been understood by contemporary analysts and by historians.
The third edition of this best-selling Lancaster Pamphlet provides an expanded and fully updated analysis.
