The review, which has quickly earned a prestigious reputation - not only in Italy - covers all the major issues currently under discussion. These range from historical demography to the history of material culture of sanity and deviance, from the analysis of class and social groupings (patriciates and the aristocracy, the industrial workforce, the peasantry, the poor and marginalised) to the study of ecclesiastical institutions, from economic history to urban and oral history. The papers in the first part of each issue have, until now, focused mainly on Italian history, from the Middle Ages to the current day, although Società e Storia has recently invited contributions on the main issues in European and world history. In the same way, the reviews and articles published in the "Orientamenti e dibattiti/Directions and debates" section cover both Italian and international themes. Of particular interest for people working in libraries, archives and other research institutes is the section entitled "Beni culturali e organizzazione della ricerca / Cultural heritage and the organization of research". Last but not least, the section "Record of received books and foreign reviews" represents a novelty for historical reviews in Italy.
