Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Dean has assembled and translated 108 excerpts from primary sources that are otherwise difficult for students and scholars to find, or perhaps even know about, relating to Italian communal cities, particularly during the 13th and 14th centuries, a period relatively neglected by historians. He has selected them to illustrate the unity of city and dependent countryside, the stability of population, urban functions, the development of public spaces, social composition, the development of autonomous institutions, and civic culture. The US distributed is by St. Martin's Press. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
