Cavour - Dennis Mack Smith Denis Mack Smith's biography of Camillo di Cavour the most comprehensive modern English-language biography of the Piedmontese politician who was a key figure in Italian unification. It provides a good overview of his political career, though one lacking in personal details and any larger historical context. As such it's recommended for anyone seeking to learn about Cavour largely in the absence of anything better.
