L’apostolo a brandelli. L’eredita’ di Mazzini tra Risorgimento e fascismo (Laterza, Rome-Bari 2010), Bottom of Form
(The book L’apostolo a brandelli. L’eredita’ di Mazzini tra Risorgimento e fascismo (Laterza, Rome-Bari), (The Apostle in Shreds: Mazzini’s Legacy from the Risorgimento to Fascism) appeared in 2010. The book offers a new interpretation of the Italian 19th-century patriot andItaly’s father founder Mazzini, by emphasizing the authoritarian and potentially anti-democratic elements of this thought, usually categorized as liberal and democratic. It also consequently draws a new intellectual genealogy for the origins of fascist ideology inItaly)

Vandecasteele, L. (2011), The structuring effect of social stratification determinants and life course events on poverty transitions in Europe. European Sociological Review. 27 (2), 246-264

The aim of this article is to assess the importance of a life event perspective on poverty in relation to the traditional social stratification approach. Lately, poverty has often been seen as a life course risk associated with certain life events and less influenced by characteristics of social position. The empirical part of this article explores the importance of the life course perspective as well as the social stratification framework for the understanding of the poverty risk. The question asked is whether risky life events have the same poverty-triggering effect for all social stratification groups or whether processes of cumulative disadvantage prevail at crucial life transitions. The findings, based on random effects event history analyses of the European Community Household Panel Survey, show that structural and biographical explanations of poverty do not present themselves as opposites, but they rather complement each other and their interactions provide interesting insights. The results show that the most vulnerable social groups are more affected by the poverty-triggering effect of a life stage like childbirth. On the other hand, job loss is a more general poverty trigger, substantially increasing everyone’s poverty entry risk. Also partnership dissolution has a poverty triggering effect for people of all educational levels and all social classes. In line with previous research, we found that partnership dissolution affects the poverty entry risk of women more strongly.
