Example text

The repression of popular unrest and the establishment of surveillance networks against the revolutionary threat can, in a similar way, be interpreted as evidence of reactionary attitudes and regressive tendencies. Risorgimento liberals criticised the economic policies of many Restoration governments, particularly the maintenance of protectionist barriers against foreign goods and the failure to improve the economic infrastructure. Historians have also seen these policies as crucial in explaining the unpopularity of Restoration government.

The differences between North and South (whether economic or political) can also be explained using a class analysis. Gramsci’s approach also fits in well with a broader Marxist interpretation that identifies the rise of the European bourgeoisie with the ‘dual’ economic and political revolution and, specifically, with industrialisation and liberalism. Eric Hobsbawm, the leading proponent of this interpretation, writes that the bourgeoisie of the third quarter of the nineteenth century was overwhelmingly ‘liberal’….

Conservative reformers in the Restoration states were, on the whole, unable to establish a broad consensus for reform. It is also worth noting that they did little to organise their generally strong basis of support amongst the peasantry. Popular counter-revolutionary militias, such as the calderai in the Two Sicilies and the centurions in the Papal States, were organised, but they tended to be used by reactionaries rather than by conservative reformers. Reinerman points out that conservative reformers greatly feared popular militias.
