Fascist and Anti-Fascist Propaganda in America:

The Dispatches of Italian Ambassador Gelasio Caetani
Pellegrino Nazzaro
ISBN: 9781934043660

"Scholars are in Nazzaro’s debt for his research in recuperating and focusing on an important slice of Italian American memory--one that should be part of their identity--and for his contribution to correcting the historical record that sees Italian Americans responding to the manipulation of the prominenti as active or passive supporters of Italian Fascism up to the entrance of the United States into World War II. ... Nazzaro has helped reopen the issue of the struggle between Fascism and anti-Fascism in the United States, especially in the 1920s." – H-net Read More..
