This publication takes a brand new method of the political heritage of the Italian Renaissance. It examines the Florentine nation from its mountainous outer edge, the place Florence met its such a lot strenuous competition to territorial incorporation. From a tributary country, which handled its surrounding geographical region as little greater than a tax reservoir and a buffer opposed to international invaders, Florence started to see its personal self-interest as intertwined with that of its zone and its rural subjects--a switch caused by means of frequent and profitable peasant uprisings, hitherto unrecorded by means of historians.
