Pulcini, Virginia
World Englishes, v16 n1 p77-85 Mar 1997
Chronicles attitudes toward the spread of English usage in Italy during the twentieth century, focusing on the Americanization of Italian society. Finds two radically different reactions to the penetration of American culture: hostility and xenophobia during the first half of the century, and accommodation and acceptance after World War II. Also examines the role of English in Italian education. (Author/MSE)
