THE WRITINGS OF BENITO MUSSOLINI
ENGLISH AND ITALIAN SOURCES
The following reading list provides bibliographic information for the most comprehensive collections of Benito Mussolini's speeches, writings, and publications that are available. Unfortunately, the political philosophy of Mussolini has not received the attention it deserves, meaning that the largest collections of his work are available only in Italian.
Research Note - For those using the Library of Congress, when requesting multi-volume sets, be certain to specify the volume number that you want. For the entire set note that you want all of the volumes. Failure to specify the volume you want means your call slip will returned by the reference librarian for clarification. This can add considerable time to the research process.
