Migliore, Anthony Michael
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis begins by examining the history of Italian participation in Europe's southern flank since 1945, focusing upon the reasons for their apparent weakness in taking a leading role. It then considers Italy's present posture within the new European order and attempts to make informed judgments as to the course of its role in European security. Europe has had two restructuring in recent history. This thesis examines the development of Italian statecraft after the first changes in 1945 to see if anything can be gleaned and applied to Italy's posture after the changes in 1991.
