A central theme is the tension between perceptions of Italy as a mythic presence, the visual incarnation of spirit, and a contrasting ambivalence felt by many Americans about the cultural ties binding them to Europe despite their political independence. With some 200 illustrations, 36 in color. Not indexed. Pre-publication price, $49.95, until 12-31-90. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).
