Catholic (Anti-)Imperialism. The Italian Catholic press and European expansionism around 1900

Shortly after its foundation, the young kingdom of Italy faced various political, economic and social difficulties. Its struggle for power, recognition and identity became apparent in the nationally and internationally crucial ‘Roman question’, in the emergence of particular Catholic milieus and in the role Italy assumed in the international power struggle, dominated by already established colonial nations.
