Publisher Description

A distinguished professor and widely published author whose scholarship has been awarded the Otto Grundler Prize and Charles Homer Haskins Medal, Thomas F. Madden offers a "savory, tantalizing" (Publishers Weekly) depiction of Venice. The first complete English-language portrait of the city in almost 30 years, Venicedetails La Serenissima's unique history - including its role as the birthplace of capitalism - that is every bit as fascinating as its heralded art and architecture.
