This article describes the publication of general histories of Italy by American authors. Americans have not had the British tradition of writing general histories and have concentrated on producing more specialized works. General histories written by Americans have been seriously conditioned by the scant knowledge American readers have of modern Italian history and by ideological and other biases. Important American historians, however, have sought to contrast these views. They have also produced different kinds of general works such as collaborative and documentary works that are notable and that should be taken into consideration when analyzing the topic.
