Description

The book investigates a wide range of violent activity and convention over the three centuries of the Renaissance and it ramifications for altering and settling differences in private disputes as well as with collective action, whether between social classes or with factional competition for power and representation. As several of the papers explore, languages of power became more dominant across the Italian peninsula and across social classes from the late fourteenth century on. States developed the use and threat of violence into finer tools of political control and oppression and could employ it with especial horrific effect in moments of crises._x000D_
