Summary
Accessible to anyone with an interest in Venice and the product of over two decades of research and study, this popular history details the varied and important roles of Venice throughout the centuries, from its inception in middle of the fifth century to its present-day incarnation. Madden (history and medieval and renaissance studies, St. Louis U.) presents a finely-wrought history of a city known for its beauty, as the birthplace of modern capitalism and the world's oldest republic. With special attention to the people of Venice, Madden explores the city's assorted expansions and falls, its varied religious history, times of both peace and unrest, wealth and poverty and reforms, and its life as a tourist destination in recent centuries.
