Tommaso Astarita is a professor of history at Georgetown University. He is a native Neapolitan and currently lives in Washington, DC.
"In the words of Anthony Grafton: 'This wonderful book offers the best introduction in any language to a complex and fascinating region. Southern Italy baffles, enchants and sometimes enrages foreigners - including most northern Italians! Tommaso Astarita's wide-ranging book sets the Fascinating and sometimes frightening society and culture of the South into the centuries of historical context that have shaped them and set them apart from the rest of Italy - and Europe.'" London Review of Books * "Astarita has produced an accessible and compelling history of an oft-ignored region." BBC History Magazine * "Lucid, evocative, and richly detailed." Jay Parini"
