Long Description
Philip Mazzei (1730-1816) belongs to the group of Italian immigrants who, not being able to achieve their dream of liberty within their own country, sowed its seeds throughout the world, risking everything from their fortunes to their lives in order to live as free men. Describing Mazzei's political, social, and commercial life in England, America, France, Poland, and Italy makes this a book a fascinating probe into the 18th century revolutionary era. Its bilingual text makes it accessible to both American and Italian readers.
