Carlo Cattaneo was one of the most prominent Italian intellectuals of the nineteenth century. Known for his prominent role in the Five Days of Milan uprising in 1848, he combined a vivid intelligence with a reform-oriented mind and a strong civic passion. This volume offers an exhaustive selection of Cattaneo’s writings, which cover a wide range of issues and advance highly innovative theories, such as the achievement of republican federalism in Italy and Europe, thought as a principle of political economy, and the psychology of associated mind. The two introductory essays examine how his ideas developed through the time and argue for their enduring vitality
This volume proposes a new and radically inclusive approach to the study of the book by using gender as a tool of analysis. While female authors and women in the book trades have long been studied, gender itself has yet to be explored as a methodology rather than a subject in book history. We argue that putting gender analysis into practice requires thinking inclusively about both the book world and the interactions of its participants from the beginning.

With twenty-five pioneering case studies that stretch from colonial Peru to modern Delhi, using a variety of intersectional methodologies including network analysis, critical bibliography, and queer theory, Gender and the Book Trades sets out an innovative method of analysing the printed book.

What role did gender play in fascist visions and politics? The contributions in this volume map the category of gender in modern forms of political organisation and mobilisation of women and men; in propaganda and in the disciplining of bodies. In this theoretical framework, gender and fascism are seen as deeply intertwined. ‘Gendering fascism’ denotes a paradigmatic lens through which to explore the configurations, strategies, and technologies of fascist imaginaries and politics. Presenting empirical case studies of Europe, Asia and America as gendered sites of historical and transnational fascist engagement, the volume challenges lingering Eurocentric perspectives in fascism studies.
