Giuliano Procacci: the history of the labour movement
The works by Giuliano Procacci concerning the history of the labour movement – from the period and issues of the Second International Age to socialism and communism in Europe between the World Wars; from the Italian labour movement, its forms of organization and geography, to the international impact of the developments in the Soviet Union – present an important approach and make an internationally acknowledged contribution, from the methodological viewpoint as well, to this kind of historiography. But they also lay the groundwork for a more comprehensive and globally oriented investigation in the contemporary world, its different protagonists, and its interdependences. The questions raised by the historian Procacci are those of a changing history in a changing world.
