Cambridge Cambridge University Press 2000 Black cloth in dust jacket Vg in vg dust jacket 8vo. B&w frontis 
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 Floence in the fouteenth and fifteenth centuries. Comprising a handful of formerly independent city-states and numerous smaller communities in the plains and mountains, the Florentine 'empire' in Tuscany supplied the markets and fiscal coffers of the Renaissance republic, while providing lessons in statescraft that nourished the political thought of Machiaveli and Guicceardini. This volume comprises seventeen original essays representing the new directions being taken by historians of the Florentine Renaissance. It offers new and exemplary approaches towards state-building, political vocabulary, political economy, cvic humanism, local history and social patronage in what is one of the most interesting and well documented of the states of late medieval and Renaissance Europe.
