The Renaissance in Italy: A Social and Cultural History of the Rinascimento
Author
Guido Ruggiero
ISBN
9780521719384
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 The book offers a vibrant and relevant critical study of a period too long burdened by anachronistic and outdated ways of thinking about the past.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.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Guido RuggieroPublisher: Cambridge University PressPublished: 12/22/2014ISBN: 9780521719384Pages: 648Weight: 2.05lbsSize: 8.90h x 6.00w x 1.40dReview Citations: Choice 06/01/2015
