Contents:
Culture, Demography, and Fiscality -- Networks of culture and the mountains -- Mountain civilization and fiscality, 1393 -- Fiscality and change, 1355-1487 -- Peasant Protest in the Mountains: Three Views -- Peasant insurrection in the mountains: the chroniclers' view -- Peasant insurrection in the mountains as seen in the criminal records -- Rebellion as seen from the provvisioni -- Governmental Clemency and the Hinterland -- Florentine peasant petitions: an institutional perspective -- The reasons for assistance -- What the peasants won -- Regression models: wealth, migration, and taxes -- Tax coefficients, 1354-1423.
Review: "This book offers a new approach to the study of the political history of the Renaissance: its analysis of government is embedded in the context of geography and social conflict. Instead of the usual institutional history, it examines the Florentine state from the mountainous periphery - a periphery both of geography and class - where Florence met its most strenuous opposition to territorial incorporation." "Yet, far from being acted upon, Florence's highlanders were instrumental in changing the attitudes of the Florentine ruling class."--Jacket.
