Carlo Rosselli fu uno dei più carismatici e influenti intellettuali antifascisti europei. Nato in una facoltosa famiglia ebrea, dopo aver rinunciato a una promettente carriera di professore di economia politica, si dedicò fino al sacrificio della vita alla lotta contro il totalitarismo. Fondatore del foglio clandestino «Non Mollare » poi, nel 1926, della rivista «Il Quarto Stato» (con Pietro Nenni) fu condannato al confino a Lipari, dove scrisse Socialismo liberale, revisione teorica del marxismo sulla base di una interpretazione del socialismo come sviluppo logico del principio di libertà. Questo libro fu pubblicato per la prima volta Parigi nel 1930, dove Rosselli approdò dopo una avventurosa fuga dal confino, e dove divenne l'animatore del movimento Giustizia e Libertà. Fra i primia ad accorrere a Barcellona per difendere la Repubblica, comandò una colonna di volontari nella guerra di Spagna, dove fu ferito prima di cadere vittima col fratello Nello, mentre si trovava in convalescenza in Normandia, di un attentato realizzato da membri della Cagoule su istigazione dei fascisti italiani. La narrazione di questa vita così intesa e drammatica si accompagna nel libro di Pugliese alla esposizione di un pensiero che, come ormai si sottolinea da più parti, ritrova oggi tutto il suo valore sul piano etico e politico.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0674000536, Hardcover)

Carlo Rosselli (1899-1937) was one of the most charismatic and influential of European antifascist intellectuals. Born into a wealthy Jewish family, and abandoning a promising career as a professor of political economics, he devoted his considerable fortune and ultimately his life to the struggle against fascism. In 1925, he was instrumental in establishing the first underground antifascist newspaper. While imprisoned for his subversive political activities, he wrote his magnum opus, Liberal Socialism, arguing that socialism was the logical development of the principle of liberty. After a daring escape, he made his way to Paris and became the driving force behind a new political movement, "Justice and Liberty." Rosselli was among the first to arrive in Barcelona after the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, in which he commanded an armed column of volunteers in defense of the Republic. When Italian fascists discovered Rosselli's plot to assassinate Mussolini, they declared him the regime's most dangerous enemy and had him murdered, along with his brother, noted historian Nello Rosselli, on a country road in Normandy.

In this work, the first biography of Rosselli in English, Stanislao Pugliese skillfully interweaves the strands of heresy, exile, and tragedy in Rosselli's life. The drama and drive of his narrative enhance the scholarly contribution that this work makes to modern Italian history and to the study of European antifascism.
