Cities and Statecraft in the Renaissance

Part of the Renaissance World series, Cities and Statecraft in the Renaissance looks at the rise of trade, commerce, guilds, and the merchant and ruling classes in northern Europe. This influenced the growth of towns, cities, states, and regions, who competed with one another for power, artistic talent, and creativity. At the same time, people rich and poor were struggling to establish new forms of society and government.

Whether purchased separately or as a series, these books, with their large, clear black on beige text and beautiful illustrations, will be a very good addition to libraries looking for an entry level overview of the Renaissance world. Highly Recommended.
