    This is a good collection of essays to read alongside Hans Baron's Crisis Of The Early Italian Renaissance since they're largely oriented towards critiuing Baron's overall ideas Your mileage may vary on individual essays but I thought two were particularly good John Najemy wrote an article that looks at the reality of republicanism in Florence by 1400 freaked out by the Ciompi Revolt a handful of upper class families controlled most of the power with offices for everyone else being largely nominal and Mikael Hornvist wrote an interesting piece on Florentine 'imperialism' during the period There's also some good work on Machiavelli near the end

    My slightly over the top reading on republicanism always gets me back here I can't even diss medievalists any Historians arguing over Hans Baron's love child and Pocock's socialism lol Nederman and Najemy are my favourites from the collection but this is the last book on florentine humanism for this year Lefties never get into this for some reason except for Ellen Wood and CHill marginally Microhistory digs it on the other hand

    Had to read this for my history presentation It's basically a bunch of historians arguing but it never gets nasty so it's a bit dull
