Allan Pasco
"Impeccable scholarship...this will be the definitive study of Rosa in France."

Book Description
Salvator Rosa (1615–1673) was a colorful and controversial Italian painter, talented musician, a notable comic actor, a prolific correspondent, and a successful satirist and poet. His paintings, especially his rugged landscapes and their evocation of the sublime, appealed to Romantic writers, and his work was highly influential on several generations of European writers. James S. Patty analyzes Rosa’s tremendous influence on French writers, chiefly those of the nineteenth century, such as Stendhal, Honoré de Balzac, Victor Hugo, George Sand, and Théophile Gautier. Arranged in chronological order, with numerous quotations from French fiction, poetry, drama, art...


Wandering Paysanos: State Order and Subaltern Experience in Buenos Aires During the Rosas Era
Ricardo D. Salvatore

May 2003
Hardcover

Book Description
Examining the experiences of peasants and peons, or paysanos, in the Buenos Aires province during Juan Manuel de Rosas’s dictatorial regime (1829–1852), Wandering Paysanos recovers a multiplicity of subaltern voices that speak about issues of paramount importance for the history of postindependence Argentina: markets, legal authority, politics, and public memory. The distinguished Argentine historian Ricardo D. Salvatore situates the paysanos as mobile job-seekers within an expanding, competitive economy as he highlights the points of contention between the peasants and the state: questions of military service, crime, and punishment. He asserts that only through a reconstruction of the different subjectivities of paysanos—-as workers, citizens, soldiers, and family members—can a new understanding of...

Book Review
When Rosa Salvatore, a Roman Catholic Italian, and Gary Fisher, the only child of prosperous Jewish parents in Long Island, decide to marry, it isn't just their vastly different family backgrounds that lead to their demise. Gary, at age 31, is dying of prostate cancer. Rosa, to put it mildly, has a chip on her shoulder--something she inherited from her mother, who, for Gary, is worse than the stereotypical mother-in-law. As Gary's condition worsens, Rosa's bitterness and shrewishness increases, despite her love for him. And though she seeks professional help, her inability to face the truth about herself ultimately destroys both her marriage and herself. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Library Journal
This impressive reference book on a topic that is, unfortunately, too rare gives an overview of the influence Italians have had on American culture. It includes short biographies of prominent people (such as former New York governor Mario Cuomo, Robert De Niro, Camille Paglia, and Enrico Fermi); not so obvious Italian Americans (Anne Bancroft, composer Walter Piston, Bobby Darin, and Bernadette Peters); as well as those lesser known, such as novelist John Fante, Candido Jacuzzi (inventor of the high-pressure tub), Edward DeBartolo (the leading builder of shopping malls), and Amadeo Obici (the founder of Planter's peanut company). More importantly, the book contains essays on the ways in which Italian Americans changed American geography and history. There are entries describing the country's many Little Italys; on...
