We changed the title to Mussolini’s Explorer: The Adventures of Giuseppe Tucci and Italian Policy in the Orient from Mussolini to Andreotti. With the Correspondence of Giulio Andreotti (Volume 1)_
Here are the endorsements of Profs Paul Arpaia (Uni. of Pennsylvania), Sumit Guha (Uni. of Texas at Austin), and Michael Witzel (Harvard University).

“As Italy takes up arms and Mussolini sets his eye on supplanting the British Crown a fact elegantly and rigorously uncovered by Garzilli in these pages Giuseppe Tucci manages to maneuver his way through the treacherous landscapes of the Himalayas and of Fascist politics to emerge as the country’s foremost scholar and archaeologist of the Orient. His achievement is monumental, and Garzilli’s monumental biography brings him joyously to life, through archival documents, personal letters, travelogues, lectures, interviews, articles, photographs, films, and her own tireless travels. Here is a hunt in search of a hunter.” –Michael Witzel, Wales Prof. of Sanskrit, Harvard University

“Enrica Garzilli’s compelling biography of Giuseppe Tucci reconstructs the life of Fascism in Asia and of preeminent explorer-scholar who traveled widely in India, Tibet, Nepal, Afghanistan, Japan, Pakistan and Iran. Few scholars today have Garzilli’s enormous breadth to weave together Tucci s contributions in history, linguistics, archeology, philosophy and anthropology under Fascist Italy and the Italian Republic.”
–Paul Arpaia, Professor of History, Indiana University of Pennsylvania

“Giuseppe Tucci has long been known as a foundational figure in the European discovery of India and Tibet as well as founder of IsMEO. This exhaustive new biographical study tells us much more about the academic side of his achievements, but also about his little-known collaborations with Mussolini and his sponsorship of Indian luminaries’ visits to Fascist Italy. It will be indispensable for anyone seeking a complete understanding of Orientalist enterprises in the early twentieth century.”
–Sumit Guha, Professor of History, The University of Texas at Austin)

Cari amici, è con molta emozione che vi informo che il mio libro L'esploratore del Duce è fra i finalisti del prestigioso Premio Acqui Storia. Dodici anni di fatiche valgono la pena se poi ho l'apprezzamento dei critici e dei lettori come voi! Colgo l'occasione per ringraziare giornalisti e studiosi che ne hanno parlato bene in tempi non sospetti, incluso la casa editrice Memori.
Grazie a tutti!

Storia in Rete di giugno è in edicola e pdf! Il Mezzogiorno e l'Unità d'Italia. Nel 1860-61 ci fu veramente un genocidio, come sostiene Pino Aprile – intervistato da Storia in Rete – sul suo ultimo libro “Carnefici”? Oppure …
