Meridian Classic, 1981 (first published in 1949)
The setting of this novel in poverty-stricken southern Italy under Mussolini's fascist regime - but it could easily be any time, anywhere that the helpless and dispossessed see their very existence threatened by the powers that rule and own the earth. This edition represents the author's final revision of his work in a translation by Eric Mosbacher, and includes and insightful Introduction by the renowed critic and historian Irving Howe.
