De Grazia, Victoria Overview. Publication Timeline. Most widely held works by Victoria De Grazia. How fascism ruled women : Italy, by Victoria De Grazia 35 editions published between and in 3 languages and held by 3, WorldCat member libraries worldwide "Italy has been made; now we need to make the Italians," is a long-familiar Italian saying. Mussolini was the first head of government to include women in this mandate. What the fascist dictatorship expected of its female subjects and how they experienced the Duce's brutal but seductive rule are the main topics of Victoria de Grazia's new book.
The author draws on an unusual array of sources--memoirs, novels, and reports on the images and events of mass culture, as well as government statistics and archival accounts--to present a broad yet detailed characterization of Italian women's ambiguous and ambivalent experience of a regime that promised women modernity, yet denied them freedom.
Always attentive to the great diversity among women and careful to distinguish fascist rhetoric from the practices actually shaping daily existence, de Grazia moves with ease from the public discourse about maternity and family life to the images of femininity in commercial culture.
The first study of women's experience under Italian fascism, this book offers a compelling treatment of the making of contemporary Italian society. With acute comparisons between the sexual politics of Italian fascism and developments elsewhere, including Hitler's Germany, de Grazia illuminates trends and dilemmas common to the construction of female citizenship in twentieth-century societies.
Irresistible empire : America's advance through twentieth-century Europe by Victoria De Grazia 35 editions published between and in 4 languages and held by 2, WorldCat member libraries worldwide The most significant conquest of the twentieth century may well have been the triumph of American consumer society over Europe's bourgeois civilization.
It is this little-understood but world-shaking campaign that unfolds in de Grazia's account of how the American standard of living defeated the European way of life and achieved the global cultural hegemony that is both its great strength and its key weakness today. Tracing the peculiar alliance that arrayed New World salesmanship, statecraft, and standardized goods against the Old World's values of status, craft, and good taste, de Grazia describes how all alternative strategies fell before America's consumer-oriented capitalism--first the bourgeois lifestyle, then the Third Reich's command consumption, and finally the grand experiment of Soviet-style socialist planning.
The sex of things : gender and consumption in historical perspective by Ellen Furlough 20 editions published between and in English and held by 2, WorldCat member libraries worldwide For centuries, women have been caricatured as consummate shoppers, relegated to provisioning the household, and fetishized as objects of advertising. This wide-ranging volume of thirteen original essays illuminates the development of modern consumption practices, gender roles, and the sexual division of labor in both the United States and Europe.
Drawing on social, economic, and art history as well as cultural studies, these essays consider commodities from bread and potatoes, cosmetics, home appliances, and the dandy's suit to social welfare handouts, movie melodramas, and pornographic picture cards.
With extensive introductions and an annotated bibliography, this volume advances a new research field and the vital social and cultural issues at stake in its progress. The culture of consent : mass organization of leisure in fascist Italy by Victoria De Grazia Book 22 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide The efforts of fascism to form a 'culture of consent, ' or shape depoliticized activities, in Italy between the world wars, make a unique portrait of fascist political tactics.
Professor de Grazia focuses on the dopolavoro or fascist leisure-time organization, the largest of the regime's mass institutions. She traces its gradual rise in importance for the consolidation of fascist rule; its spread in the form of thousands of local clubs into every domain of urban and rural life; and its overwhelming impact on the distribution, consumption, and character of all kinds of recreational pursuits - from sports and adult education to movies, traveling theaters, radio, and tourism.
The author shows how fascism was able, between and , to build a new definition of the public sphere. Recasting the public sphere entailed dispensing with traditional class and politically defined modes of organizing those social roles and desires existing outside the workplace.

Have you seen my other posts from this China trip? Downtown Chengdu has numerous pockets worth exploring, and right at its heart is Tianfu Square. Beneath all of this is a shopping mall, loads of eateries and a bustling metro interchange. Opposite the hotel is this convenient little eatery which is very much about home-style Sichuan cooking. Lou She is as un-fancy as they come — bright lighting, tiny plastic stools and vinyl tables topped with bottles of vinegar, soy and chilli.
