Linton- Life in the Collections

Salvo Mastellone ed.:

63) Mazzini e Linton. Una democrazia europea.

Firenze 2007

This study, which explores the relationships between Giuseppe Mazzini and Linton from the early 1840s to the late 1850s, is mainly based on the collection of Linton’s political correspondence in the Instituto Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, Milano. It provides a lot of valuable source material, also on the ideological conflicts between Mazzini and Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx. A central focus is placed on Linton’s journal The English Republic, which published a series of important manifestos by Mazzini and the Central European Democratic Committee.
