http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51FXRuKh9KL._SL500_AA300_.jpgHow successful was Mussolini in creating a force of loyal and committed policemen to defend his regime and assist in the creation of a new fascist civilization? How far were the Italian police transformed under Mussolini, and how did policemen experience the dictatorship? This book examines Italy's regular police in the context of fascism's efforts to modernise and establish ideological control over the state. Contrasting the regime's idealised representations with the more humdrum realities of everyday practice, the book considers the impact of the dictatorship on the Italian police and their personnel. Presenting an inside perspective on fascist repression, it focuses particularly on recruitment, training and professionalism in the Interior Ministry Police, as well as officers' ideological orientation, working conditions and quality of life. This book will appeal to students and researchers in police history, Italian fascism and, more generally, conflict and oppression in the twentieth century.

Un livre important ( comme tout ce que produit Jonathan Dunnage) pour la compréhension de l’attitude de policiers et carabinieri confrontés au régime fasciste.


Du même auteur, on lira avec intérêt l’étude de cas qu’il avait consacrée à la police de Bologne (The Italian Police and the Rise of Fascism: A Case Study of the Province of Bologna, 1897- 1925, Greenwood Press, 1997, 198p., 90,50€)
