This is the autobiography of the most important thinker of post-war Italy
* This book explores, through the lens of Bobbio's life, the political development of Italy in the 20th Century including the rise of Fascism and Mussolini. In all of this Bobbio is a key figure
* Contextualizes Bobbio's own major intellectual contributions which are centred on his theory of democracy and human rights
* Given Bobbio's enormous stature as a contemporary intellectual figure we're hoping to get some high profile endorsements such as Umberto Eco and Eric Hobsbawm
