The reader seeking to understand the powerful resurgence of fascism in the world today will profit from Lussu's account. This is an autobiography through which the reader encounters men and women caught up in the brutalizing of a State whose opponents suffer the consequences of holding to principle. In Sardinia in the 1920's a weak and scheming bourgeois class fell easy prey to fascism. Lussu's personal, humorous, warm, perceptive, ironic and telling account of his own humiliation and punishment, affords the reader the unique perspective of a man at the center of opposition to a murderous movement which would eventually plunge Europe into war.
