Reviews

“Book is written in a comprehensible and clear manner … . I am confident that the book will serve as an important vehicle to help academics, professionals, researchers, and policymakers, working in the research of economics and entrepreneurship. Overall, Italy in a European Context: Research in Business, Economics, and the Environment is a very interesting reference book that is valuable for all scholars interested in the field as well as those approaching the subject for the first time.” (Nicola Cucari, Journal of Economics Library, Vol. 3 (2), June, 2016)

“This book is written by a combination of researches that deal with different fields and each of them is an original contribution to its specific research theme. What makes this book different from all traditional ones, is the variety of perspectives it adopts to investigate the EU five target themes and, in this sense, it can capture a wide audience of readers, not only academics. … book contributes to support the diffusion of a European culture and sense of citizenship.” (Michele Postigliola, Turkish Economic Review, Vol. 3 (1), March, 2016)

“Italy in a European Context offers the reader a selection of essays presented at seminars organized by Euro Sapienza. … All the essays are presented in a manner designed to attract a readership beyond the circle of academics and professionals, but without sacrificing scientific rigor and accuracy.” (Filippo Di Iorio, The Journal of European Economic History, Issue 3, January, 2015)
