Reviews

Based on solid methodological and theoretical considerations, this book offers an insightful study of Italian foreign policy, relating it to both the US-led international hegemonic order and the process of Europeanization of foreign policies of European Union (EU) member states. It includes thorough studies of Italian voting and sponsoring activities in the UN General Assembly and Security Council. It discusses the impact of emerging powers and the advent of President Trump on the global order as well as financial and migration crises within the EU, both having some effect without fundamentally undermining the Europeanization of Italian foreign policy so far. -- Finn Laursen, University of Southern Denmark This book is a timely and fascinating contribution to the literature on Italian politics. Blending insights from as diverse theories as Europeanization and hegemonic order, Monteleone provides a nuanced account of Italy's foreign policy. With its original focus on coalitional dynamics at the UNGA and UNSC, the book makes a compelling case for the Europeanization argument as applied to the Italian case. However, it also raises disturbing questions about the future of EU cohesion in a time of crisis. Essential reading for anyone interested in the fate of Italy's - and Europe's - role in the world. -- Andrea Locatelli, Universita Cattolica, Italy

Challenging conventional judgments and prejudices, she provides us a much richer and articulated assessment about the question of continuity and discontinuity of Italian foreign policy in the US-led world order. -- Vittorio Emanuele Parsi, Catholic University of Milan
