"Between Hollywood and Moscow is an outstanding work that treats the effects of modernization and the development of a mass consumer society in Italy in an original and illuminating manner. It restores a sense of the importance of culture as an integral part of political strategizing, and communicates the shifting meanings of culture over four decades of Italian history." - Ruth Ben-Ghiat, New York University "Between Hollywood and Moscow makes an original contribution to the study of the PCI and post-war Italy in general from a cultural point of view, and reveals the importance of specific cultural strategies and transformations in the political history of the PCI." - John Dickie, University College, London "Between Hollywood and Moscow ... offers scintiallating insight into both the history of the Italian Communist Party (PCI) and relations between ideology and mass culture in the twentieth century."--TLS, February 8, 2002 "Between Hollywood and Moscow ... offers scintillating insight into both the history of the Italian Communist Party (PCI) and relations between ideology and mass culture in the twentieth century. The book surveys the PCI's interventions in the cultural sphere, high and l ow, in a carefully judged and vividly written sequence, based on a mass of research in archives, journals, newspapers and magazines." --TLS, 8 February 2002
