Italy in the Post-Cold War Order: Adaptation, Bipartisanship, Visibility, edited by Maurizio Carbone, explains the evolution of Italy's foreign relations since the end of the Cold War. By integrating international and domestic factors, this collection shows how the transition from a bipolar into a unipolar/multipolar world order and the changes in its domestic political context has provided Italy with new opportunities, such as pursuing its commercial and political interests more autonomously, as well as new responsibilities, such as actively contributing to solving international crises and addressing new global threats.
