Summary The experience of exiles was fundamental for shaping Italian national identity. Risorgimento in Exile investigates the contribution to Italian nationalism made by the numerous patriots who were forced to live in exile following failed revolutions in the Italian states. Examining the writings of such exiles, Maurizio Isabella challenges existing historiography regarding the lack of genuine liberal culture in the Risorgimento. He argues that these --eacute--;migr--eacute--;s' involvement in debates with British, continental, and American intellectuals points to the emergence of Liberalism and Rom.
