Florentine Tuscany: Structures and Practices of Power (Cambridge Studies in Italian History and Culture) Paperback – January 22, 2004
"... a major contribution to the long, untiring debate about the nature and affinities of the Italian (and by extension non-Italian) Renaissance state." --P. J. Jones, English Historical Review
"...l'ampleur des recherches ... ici rassemblee est impressionante...." --Charles M. de La Ronciere, Le moyen age
"Die zentrale Frage ist, wie es Florenz gelang, ... civitates wie Arezzo, Pisa, Pistoia und Volterra unter seine Kontrolle zu bringen, und wie es die Macht tatsächlich ausübte."
--Andreas Meyer, Historische Zeitschrift
This volume gathers together seventeen original essays that represent the new directions being taken by historians of the Florentine Renaissance. Florence has often been studied in the past for its distinctive urban culture and society, while insufficient attention has been paid to the important Tuscan territorial state that was created by Florence in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. These essays offer new and exemplary approaches towards state-building, political vocabulary, political economy, civic humanism, local history and social patronage.
