Carlo Tresca, a renowned Italian opponent of Fascism, led an eventful life as a newspaper editor, Anarchist and anti-Communist. Nunzio Pernicone uses his history as a springboard to investigate Italian immigrant and radical communities in the US, where Tresca's passion left a permanent mark. After WWI, he quickly became a leading anti-Fascist voice in the US, his hatred of Mussolini playing a key role in stopping the spread of Fascism into Italian-American communities. This updated edition of his story gives new insight into the immigrant experience.
Nunzio Pernicone, originally from New York City, now lives in Eastern Pennsylvania and is a professor at Drexel University. He is the author of Italian Anarchism, 1864-1892 (2009), and editor of The Autobiography of Carlo Tresca (2003), and has published numerous articles on the Italian labor movement, Luigi Galleani, Italian anarchist terrorism, and anti-Fascism.
