Arpaia Publishes “The Battle over Nationalism and the War for Libya”

Dr. Paul Arpaia, Department of History, published the lead article in the 2011 issue of the Annali della Fondazione Ugo La Malfa.

This year, the Annals were dedicated to the centennial of the Italo-Turkish War which resulted in the further destabilization of the Ottoman Empire, the creation of Italian colonial control over Libya, and the Italian occupation of twelve of the Dodecanese Islands.

His article, entitled “The Battle over Nationalism and the War for Libya,” connects foreign policy and domestic cultural and political developments. In the article he analyzes how neoconservative opponents to democratic reform in Italy manipulated the antiwar stance of leading members of the prodemocracy movement to co-opt patriotism and nationalism for their antidemocratic political agendas.
