The Renaissance in Italy : A Social and Cultural History of the Rinascimento, Paperback / softback Book

The Renaissance in Italy : A Social and Cultural History of the Rinascimento Paperback / softback

Description

This book offers a rich and exciting new way of thinking about the Italian Renaissance as both a historical period and a historical movement.

Guido Ruggiero's work is based on archival research and new insights of social and cultural history and literary criticism, with a special emphasis on everyday culture, gender, violence and sexuality.

The book offers a vibrant and relevant critical study of a period too long burdened by anachronistic and outdated ways of thinking about the past.

Familiar, yet alien; pre-modern, but suggestively post-modern; attractive and troubling, this book returns the Italian Renaissance to center stage in our past and in our historical analysis.
