Popular government and oligarchy in Renaissance Italy by Christine Shaw( file )
12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,141 libraries worldwide
This book is an examination of the nature of the governments 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

Together they throw light on the complex effects of the wars, how Italians tried to explain and to react to the dramatic changes these brought, and how the European powers who conquered and occupied Italian states dealt with their new subjects
