Geography still divides the Italians.

In this superb history of Italy and the Italian people, Gilmour celebrates a nation of bewilderingly mixed bloods and ethnicities. The Pursuit of Italy offers an enduring tribute to a various and wonderful people. Ian Thomson, Evening Standard. Gilmour's pursuit is ambitious both in scope and intent, covering Italy's land, regions and people from Ancient Rome to the Berlusconi administrations in a tightly written 400 pages. He cautions that since this is not an academic work (although 376 source books are cited in the text), he has allowed himself "to be quirkily subjective in (his) selection of topics.

Why, people asked, did Italy not function?  .

Why, people asked, did Italy not function? Gilmour writes. Was it in fact a real nation or was it just a 19th-century invention? Except in a purely formal sense, could it really be said to exist? Gilmour has attempted to answer these questions by providing an alternative history of Italy, not taking the usual centripetal line but emphasizing the country’s longtime centrifugal tendencies.

There was little good land and few harbors. Finally, as our eagle approached Italy’s boot and high heel, the chain widened out into the dry, windy prairies of Apulia. The western coastline was a friendlier place. The beautiful hill country of Etruria, intersected and circumscribed by mountain ranges, contained few but extremely productive plains. At its largest extent, the great empire of the Hittites (properly, the Land of the City of Hattusa) controlled most of what is now Turkey and Syria.

More than 56 million people live in Britain. But foreigners are often surprised by the fact that much of land in Britain is open country. There are many lonely hills, quiet rivers, deep lakes and just farmlands especially in the south of the country. Everyone in Britain speaks English. Everyone in the UK speaks English.

The Land is a protest song, traditionally sung by the Georgist movement in pursuit and promotion of land value taxation. The song became a Liberal radical anthem in the aftermath of David Lloyd George's "people's budget" of 1909 which proposed a tax on land. Its first appearance is from a Chicago Georgist publication, The Single Tax, in 1887 as The Land Song. Until the late 1970s it was sung at the end of each year's Liberal Assembly and was the party anthem of the Liberal Party, until that party merged with the SDP to form the Liberal Democrats. During the two general elections of the following year, "The Land Song" became the governing Liberals' campaign song.
