Beschreibung

Provides a discussion in English of the history of a region of Europe, a genre common in other countries but undeveloped in Britain. This book deals with two mountain valleys in Tuscany from the eight to the 12th century, with some examination of their future progress into the 16th. It also charts their internal social and economic development.

`Wickham's book serves as a welcome reminder that Milan is too easily taken as a model for all Italy ... By resolutely keeping in view the concerns of those who actually inhabited the region, Wickham has not simply introduced Italian local history to England but has enhanced the subject in the process.' David Abulafia Times Literary Supplement

Klappentext

One of the few anthropological studies of medieval history ever to be written, this book charts the internal social and economic development of two mountain valley societies in Tuscany from the 8th to the 12th century. Linking Garfagnana and Casentino with the emerging world of Italian city states, the author explores society from below, through the activities of the local people, rather than through the interests of their masters.
