The politics of exile in Renaissance Italy by Christine Shaw( Book )
20 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 362 libraries worldwide
"Political exiles were a prominent feature of political life in Renaissance Italy, often a source of intense concern to the states from which they were banished, and a ready instrument for governments wishing to intervene in the affairs of their rivals and enemies. This book provides the first systematic analysis of the role of exiles in the political life of fifteenth-century Italy." "The main focus is on the experiences and reactions of the exiles, and on how Italian states dealt with their own exiles and those of other powers." "Such a detailed study of the phenomenon of exile also provides fresh perspectives on the nature and power of governments in fifteenth-century Italy, and on ideas about the legitimacy of political authority and political action."--Jacket
Popular government and oligarchy in Renaissance Italy by Christine Shaw( Book )
15 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 206 libraries worldwide
"This book is an examination of the nature of the government of towns and cities, great and small, in Renaissance Italy, and of why oligarchic regimes were becoming increasingly prevalent. Themes and questions arising from a case-study of the dramatic changes in the government of fifteenth-century Siena form the basis for the analysis of popular government and oligarchy throughout Italy, from Piedmont and the Veneto to Sicily, and of how they were shaped by social change, institutional developments and external threats and pressures, especially war. In a field dominated by local studies, this comparative approach provides a fresh understanding of the important problem of how and why broadly-based governments were losing ground to oligarchy throughout Italy."--Jacket
The Italian Wars, 1494-1559 : war, state and society in early modern Europe by Michael Edward Mallett( Book )
16 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 205 libraries worldwide
The Italian Wars of 1494-1559 had a major impact on the whole of Renaissance Europe. In this important text, Michael Mallett and Christine Shaw place the conflict within the political and economic context of the wars. Emphasising the gap between aims and strategies of the political masters and what their commanders and troops could actually accomplish on the ground, they analyse developments in military tactics and the tactical use of firearms and examine how Italians of all sectors of society reacted to the wars and the inevitable political and social change that they brought about. The history of Renaissance Italy is currently being radically rethought by historians. This book is a major contribution to this re-evaluation, and will be essential reading for all students of Renaissance and military history

"This is an examination of the impact of the crucial central phase of the Italian Wars on the society, politics and culture of Italy, and how the experience of these campaigns and their consequences affected the combatants and the way they saw Italy and the Italians. The essays cover a broad range of subjects from fortifications and military organization to civic and royal ritual, music and musicians to universities, political society and diplomacy to the history of ideas."--Jacket
