Summary The author explains why the cradle of western civilization, which has assimilated so many barbarians in its time, endured the tyrant Mussolini and a sack worse than any in its past. He shows how the peasantry and the clergy were at once actors and pawns in the drama of Italy's history, and how the defects in her society led to the internal strife she knows today.
