Venice reconsidered : the history and civilization of an Italian city-state, 1297-1797

The essays in this volume offer a portrait of Venice from the establishment of the Republic at the end of the 13th century to its fall to Napoleon in 1797. In contrast to efforts which have characterized Venice's politics as strictly republican, the volume presents a more fluid interpretation.
