First collected edition of four articles originally published in the Rivista di Milano between 5 May and 20 July 1920: ‘Generalità’, ‘Sgretolamento della Sovranità centrale’, ‘Il Ciclo plutocratico’, and ‘I Sentimenti’, with an appendix in which Pareto relates the pieces to the theory set out in his Trattato di Sociologia (1916). Along with the articles collected in Fatti e Teorie (1920), these represent the application, with some adaptation, of his major sociological ideas to history and contemporary development. They are an important source for his political ideas at the end of his life, when he engaged, ambiguously, with Fascism. See Placido Bucolo, The Other Pareto, pp. 248–53.
